FLORHAM PARK — Maybe Jets’ fans won’t have to wait until 2018 to finally see Christian Hackenberg play.

Coach Todd Bowles wouldn’t rule out the possibility of Hackenberg making his long-awaited NFL debut on Sunday when the Jets play the Patriots.

“We’ll see,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey,“ he said.

The plan is for Bryce Petty to start at New England. Petty has played every snap since starter Josh McCown suffered a season-ending broken hand in Week 14.

Bowles said he’ll decide during Sunday’s game if it’s time to finally get Hackenberg his first NFL snaps. He wouldn’t provide any details about what will go into that decision. But he tried to lower the expectations in case Hackenberg does play.

” Bowles said. “To put him out there the last game and expect him to be Superman,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey,“Christian’s time will come,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, we’d be fooling ourselves.”

Hackenberg has been a polarizing figure for the Jets since he was selected in the second round of the 2016 draft. He’s struggled with accuracy during offseason workouts and has looked overwhelmed in preseason games during each of his first two seasons.

Still,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey, some fans believe that the Jets are missing an opportunity if they don’t get Hackenberg out on the field in a real game and see what they have — especially with Petty struggling mightily the last two games.

Bowles doesn’t agree.

“I don’t feel the need to put him in this game,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey,” Bowles said of Hackenberg. “We see him every day in practice. We saw him in the preseason. We’re comfortable.”

But Bowles wouldn’t say if he’d talked with general manager Mike Maccagnan about potentially playing Hackenberg late in the season.

“What me and Mike talk about is private,” Bowles said.

In the preseason,Despite Bowles' claims that he won't make a decision until Sunday,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, Bowles refused to reveal the quarterback rotation before any game. But it became clear his plan all along was to give Hackenberg the majority of the reps and a chance to beat out Petty and McCown for the starting job.

But he played poorly,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, two touchdowns and two interceptions while being sacked nine times.

Bowles said that the Jets were able to get a good read on Hackenberg during that time. And he said that Hackenberg learned a lot. But he also hinted as to why he’s hesitant to throw Hackenberg into action in the final week of the season.

you don’t get a chance to play those guys like you want to,Womens Joe Montana Jersey,“The regular season is not preseason,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey,” Bowles said. “And you don’t just put pull them in and out and expect them to play where the defenses are more complex than they are in the preseason.”

Hackenberg said he won’t change anything about his routine this week. And he said that Bowles hasn’t approached him about potentially playing. But he did admit there is some measure of excitement about finally playing.

of course, Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey,you’re excited. But I think the big thing is to not get so lost in that and continue to make sure that you’re hammering home on the fine details each week and making sure you know the game plan and things like that.”,” he said. “At the end of the day,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, all of us want to play and all of us compete and we come out and we work extremely hard. … So,“Yeah, I mean, naturally as a player, yeah
