Draft Scout Ryan Fitzpatrick News
11/19/15 - Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Sunday's game against the Houston Texans just nine days after having surgery on his left thumb.
Fitzpatrick underwent the procedure to repair a torn ligament in his nonthrowing hand. He said he will wear a protective glove and be mindful of the stitches when he faces his former team.
"I don't know how long they will be in," Fitzpatrick told reporters of the stitches. "Just any time they open you up, infection is a big concern, so just keeping everything clean - that is one of the main things we are kind of keeping an eye on.
"I don't think [the pain] will go away. But as the season will be going on, I will be getting better."
Fitzpatrick said he is currently feeling more pain than before the surgery. He said that is due to the fact surgeons sliced his hand open to do the procedure.
11/14/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's quasi-bye week began Friday on an operating room table. Fitzpatrick underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist. Fitzpatrick was injured while scrambling against the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 1, though he was able to start and play the entirety of the next two games.
Fitzpatrick said Thursday night he planned to play a week from Sunday, when the Jets visit the Houston Texans. Bowles echoed Fitzpatrick's hopes on Friday.
"That's the plan," Bowles said.
11/12/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will take advantage of the Jets' quasi-bye week by having surgery Friday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Fitzpatrick hinted at such a decision this week before he and Bowles confirmed it following Thursday's loss. Both Bowles and Fitzpatrick expect Fitzpatrick to play Nov. 22, when the Jets visit the Houston Texans. The Jets have to hope the surgery allows Fitzpatrick to regain his pre-injury form. He completed 61.9 percent of his passes while throwing 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions before getting hurt, but he is 36 of 68 (52.9 percent) for 465 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the two games in which he played through the ailment.
11/09/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick may use the Jets' quasi-bye week following Thursday's game to repair his damaged left thumb.
CBS reported during the Jets' win on Sunday that Fitzpatrick was leaning towards undergoing surgery to fix the torn ligaments he suffered against the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 1. Fitzpatrick continued to dodge the question Monday but acknowledged he either has to have the surgery Friday or wait until after the season.
11/02/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick exited in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Oakland with torn ligaments in his left thumb. The injury will require surgery at some point and Fitzpatrick hasn't yet been ruled out of this Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
