“We’re going to monitor as we go through the week,” said McDermott, via Joel Erickson of The Advocate. “Right now, it looks like he’ll be ready to go. He’s done a good job of getting himself up to speed quickly.”
Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said he is not discouraged with QB Christian Hackenberg‘s development and that the team has an “idea” of what he needs to continue working on.
“With any player, they all develop at different paces and different rates,” said Maccagnan, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “I think (the preseason) was a good experience for Christian. I think we got an idea what he still needs to improve upon, like with any young player, but I wouldn’t say (I’m) discouraged.”
Maccagnan added that he is “encouraged” by the effort of Hackenberg and QB Bryce Petty.
“I think Christian has done some positive things. I think there are areas he still needs to improve upon. I’m encouraged by the work he and Bryce (Petty) are putting in.”
“Tom’s gotten some reps, T.J. got reps,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I’m not saying it was 50-50, but I’d tell you that T.J. got some good reps. He got a decent amount. We’re just trying to get him back into the fold of running the offense and just gave him a decent amount of reps, not more than a normal No. 2.”
- According to Terry McCormick, the Titans “will discuss” activating WR Harry Douglas or OLB Aaron Wallace off the team’s injured reserve next week.
