While the Jets have yet to name their starting quarterback for their second preseason matchup, head coach Todd Bowles told the media who wouldn't play against the Lions Saturday night.
"We'll probably hold Mauldin (back) out," Bowles said. "Forté (hamstring) hasn't practiced the whole week, so he won't play."
Wide receivers Marquess Wilson (hip) and Daniel Williams (concussion) also will not play.
However, the Jets will receive a shot in the arm as running back Bilal Powell is set to make his preseason debut. Rookie OLB Dylan Donahue and S Shamarko Thomas are expected to make their debuts as they were both held out of the preseason opener, but both players practiced all week.
WR Quincy Enunwa, who will miss the next six to nine months due to a bulging disc in his neck, was a bystander at practice today. The third-year player has yet to be placed on injured reserve, but Bowles said he's getting surgery sometime next week.
Bryce Petty had his most reps of camp and fired a handful of touchdown passes, two of which landed in the hands of tight end Jason Vander Laan…Cornerback Morris Claiborne had a pair of picks. The first one bounced off of WR Chris Harper's hands from a Christian Hackenberg rocket that took a fortuitous bounce and fell into Claiborne's lap. He later picked off Bryce Petty, who was scrambling to avoid pressure from OLB Freddie Bishop…TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught a nice ball from Josh McCown down the seams that stretched over Bishop's outreached hand...Rookie CB Derrick Jones showed nice closing speed and batted down a ball from Petty intended for WR Charone Peake.
