Bryce Petty has a bruised chest

Test results show Jets quarterback Bryce Petty has a bruised chest.

After being sandwich sacked in Saturday night's 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Bryce Petty's chest injury is just a bruise. A source told Ian Rapoport that test results turned out "OK," and show no long-term damage to Petty's chest.

In the fourth quarter, Petty was simultaneously crushed on a tag team tackle from Miami's Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh.

Petty finished the game 20-of-36 for 235 yards, with two interceptions and one touchdown. Petty was replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick when the game was well out of reach.

The Jets will start practicing Tuesday as they prepare to take on the New England Patriots on Christmas Eve. Baring any setbacks during the week, Petty will likely be the starter for the teams final road game. Head coach Todd Bowles named Petty the starter for the final four games after the teams 41-10 Monday night debacle against the Indianapolis Colts.

TUESDAY UPDATE: Petty spoke to the media about his injury after practice on Tuesday and looks like he will be fine for Saturday. Watch the complete video above!
