Jets QBs coach Jeremy Bates was noncommittal when asked if Christian Hackenberg will see the field this season.
"As an organization, this is professional football," said Bates. "This isn't Triple-A. We're going to play the best players that give us the opportunity to win at all positions." This comes a day after coach Todd Bowles said he couldn't imagine a scenario where Hackenberg or Bryce Petty would overtake current starter Josh McCown barring injury. These comments further suggest that Hackenberg, a wasted second-round pick in 2016, is not part of the team's current or future plans. The Jets have been better than expected this year at 4-6 but are still likely to draft a quarterback.

Skrine is out with a concussion and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Darryl Roberts. Falcons-Jets is expected to be impacted by rain today.

The Jets declared QB Christian Hackenberg, OL Brian Winters, WR Chad Hansen, TE Eric Tomlinson, CB Derrick Jones, TE Jordan Leggett and S Rontez Miles inactive for Week 3 against the Dolphins.
Bryce Petty is ahead of Hackenberg for the No. 2 QB spot, and the Jets will likely stick with Josh McCown in the short term.
