Tests neg­a­tive on Petty’s chest

The Times-Tribune - - National Football League -

NEW YORK — Jets coach Todd Bowles said dur­ing a ra­dio in­ter­view that a CT scan on Bryce Petty’s chest was neg­a­tive and the quar­ter­back could play Satur­day at New Eng­land.

Petty was in­jured on the first play of the fourth quar­ter of the Jets’ 34-13 loss to Mi­ami last Satur­day night when he was sand­wiched by Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh as he threw a 28-yard pass to Robby An­der­son. X-rays at the sta­dium were neg­a­tive, but New York was await­ing re­sults of ad­di­tional tests Sun­day.

Bowles told ESPN New York ra­dio dur­ing his weekly ap­pear­ance that Petty is sore, but is “a lot bet­ter than we thought he would be.”

Bowles wouldn’t com­mit to Petty start­ing, say­ing he needs to see how the quar­ter­back feels dur­ing prac­tice today.

De­pend­ing on Petty’s health, Bowles said the Jets could have three quar­ter­backs — in­clud­ing rookie Chris­tian Hack­en­berg — ac­tive at New Eng­land. The sec­ond-round pick has been in­ac­tive for ev­ery game.

Linebacker Ran­dell John­son was signed from the Los Angeles Rams’ prac­tice squad.

The team also an­nounced that it waived linebacker Arthur Brown.

John­son was a sev­en­thround draft pick by Buf­falo in 2014 out of Florida At­lantic. He had seven tack­les and two fum­ble re­cov­er­ies in 15 games with the Bills over two sea­sons.
