Petty relieved a mostly ineffective Christian Hackenberg in the 2nd half while trailing 29-3. Against the Giants’ reserves, Petty led a nice comeback completing 15 of 18 passes for 250 yards. He was injured during the potentially go-ahead drive which Hackenberg finished and led the team to a TD and within a point. The two point conversion failed and the Jets lost by a point, 31-32.
More news on Petty’s status as we get it.
