We now know who the Jets’ starting quarterback will be against the Seahawks on Sunday, but will their “changing” quarterback play too?
Chris Streveler made a fine debut for the Jets last Thursday against the Jaguars when he replaced Zach Wilson in the third quarter. He ran for 54 yards on nine carries and completed 10 of 15 passes for 90 yards.
Now that Mike White is back as the starting quarterback, Streveler, who is on the practice squad, may not be needed. But could the Jets use him for a series or two against the Seahawks as a change of pace?
“We’ll see. He did a really good job with that,” Jets coach Robert Saleh said. “he’s done and still does for New Orleans. There’s a lot of guys coming back healthy this week, hopefully. There’s a lot of gymnastics on the roster that should happen. But that’s something thing we’re talking about. It’s not a guarantee.
The Jets should use one of their practice squad lifts on Streveler and find a way to make him one of their active players. It can be tough if the Jets have injured players returning this week. Last week, the Jets had five inactive players who were injured.
The offensive line has suffered a lot recently, but Saleh said he doesn’t see any roster changes.
“They are fighting,” Saleh said. “The O line has had a ton of injuries throughout the year. Just along the offensive line with the guys we’re deploying there now, they’re fighting their tails – the amount of rehab and regeneration that they’re trying to get through week in and week out and the sacrifice they’re making for this team just to be able to get out on the football pitch on Sunday is very much appreciated. we are going to war every week and i promise you they are suffering a lot and fighting.
Saleh said the team hopes safety Lamarcus Joyner (hip) can play this week after missing the last two games.
