New York Jets third-string quarterback Bryce Petty suffered a considerable MCL injury, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, citing his sources. However, Rapoport said Petty did not suffer any ACL damage. Petty, third in the depth chart behind Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg, could be an important player for the Jets given their shaky quarterback situation. There were conflicting reports about Petty’s injury, with ESPN’s Adam Schefter saying that the quarterback will be ready for the start of the regular season. However, NFL.com reported that Petty could miss some time with his MCL injury, leaving McCown and Hackenberg to win the job.

Petty made his case for the starting quarterback job after completing 15 of 18 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns before suffering the injury in their 32-31 loss to their crosstown rival, the New York Giants.

McCown began training camp taking the most snaps and started in the Jets’ first preseason game. However, he has not played since then as the Jets ramped up Hackenberg's reps in practice and started him in their next two preseason games. In three preseason games, Hackenberg went 32-for-53 for 267 yards with one touchdown, two packs, and six sacks. Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to name a starting quarterback by Monday or Tuesday.

Bears’ top wideout Cameron Meredith suffered knee injury

Chicago Bears top wide receiver Cameron Meredith could have suffered a torn ACL after he took a low hit to his knee in the first quarter of their preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.

Aside from the ACL tear, Rapoport said Meredith likely suffered additional damage as well. The Bears were expecting Meredith to shine after the departure of their top wideout Alshon Jeffery. The Bears will have to rely on third-year wideout Kevin White to fill the void left by Meredith, who caught 66 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Bears.

Chiefs rusher Spencer Ware out for season?

The Kansas City Chiefs announced that their starting running back Spencer Ware sustained a torn PCL in their loss to the Seattle Seahawks Friday and could be out for the season. The Chiefs said Ware will get a second opinion but they are expecting him to be sidelined for the 2017 season. Aside from a PCL tear, Ware also sustained LCL damage, according to Rapoport. Last season, Ware led the team in rushing with a career-high 921 yards.
