Draft Scout Ryan Fitzpatrick News
12/30/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb, back, right elbow) was limited in practice Wednesday. "Body aches," said coach Todd Bowles, who expressed no concern over Fitzpatrick's availability for Sunday's win-and-they're-in game against the Buffalo Bills. Fitzpatrick needs one touchdown pass to become the first Jets quarterback to throw 30 touchdowns in a season. He is also 276 yards shy of becoming the second Jets quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in a season and 284 yards shy of breaking Joe Namath's franchise record for passing yardage, set during a 14-game season in 1967.
Fitzpatrick was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after going 26-for-41 for 296 yards and three touchdowns Sunday, including the game-winning 6-yard overtime strike to WR Eric Decker.
12/28/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick tied the franchise record for touchdown passes in a single season on Sunday, when he tossed three touchdowns in the Jets' 26-20 overtime win over the New England Patriots. Fitzpatrick's six-yard touchdown pass to WR Eric Decker in overtime was his 29th of the season, which matched Vinny Testaverde's total from 1998. Prior to this season, Fitzpatrick's career-high in touchdown passes was 24, achieved twice with the Buffalo Bills in 2011 and 2012.
12/16/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week Tuesday, two days after he went 21-of-36 for 263 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Jets' 30-8 win over the Tennessee Titans. Fitzpatrick is the second straight Jets player to be named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. WR Brandon Marshall earned the honors for week 13 after catching 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' 23-20 overtime win over the New York Giants. Fitzpatrick has thrown for 930 yards, nine touchdowns and no interceptions during the Jets' three-game winning streak.
11/29/15 - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick got back on track Sunday, when he threw for 277 yards and a season-high four touchdown passes in the Jets' 38-20 win over the Dolphins. Fitzpatrick was 22-of-37 and didn't throw an interception for just the third time in 11 games this season. He entered Sunday with five touchdown passes and four interceptions in his last four starts, though he played less than a quarter against the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 1 due to torn ligaments in his left thumb. Overall this year, Fitzpatrick has thrown for 2,476 yards, 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
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.
