Bryce Petty Active for Jets' Game at Raiders

Will Back Up Josh McCown Today, with Hackenberg on Inactive List; Kerley, Dozier, Sterling Active


Jets head coach Todd Bowles has placed QB Christian Hackenberg on his inactive list for today's Game 2 against the Raiders, meaning that Bryce Petty will be active and will serve as Josh McCown's backup at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Last week, Petty practiced full but was listed on the Jets' injury report for their opener at Buffalo with his knee injury and was deactivated for that game. This week Petty again practiced full but was not listed on the injury report. He will be on call if needed against the Silver & Black.

Three other Jets who were inactive for the Buffalo game will also be active today.

WR Jeremy Kerley is in line to make his return to the Jets official. Kerley, released by San Francisco and signed Sept. 5, played in his last Jets game at the Bills in the 2015 season finale, and had his last reception for the Jets also against the Bills in Game 9 of the '15 season.

Neal Sterling, signed Sept. 6, is ready if called on to pitch in with Will Tye, who will get the starting assignment today, for the tight end corps, low in numbers with Austin Seferian-Jenkins serving the last of his two-game NFL suspension today and Eric Tomlinson (elbow) and rookie Jordan Leggett (knee) sidelined.

And Dakota Dozier is expected to back up C Wes Johnson and the interior line today after Jonotthan Harrison's concussion suffered in Wednesday's practice.

The Jets' complete inactive list today:

■ QB Christian Hackenberg

■ CB Derrick Jones

■ S Rontez Miles

■ LB Bruce Carter

■ OL Jonotthan Harrison

■ TE Eric Tomlinson

■ TE Jordan Leggett
