Jets trying to build Christian Hackenberg's confidence

Jets QB Christian Hackenberg will play some during the first preseason game

"I'm not expecting him to go out there and be Roger Staubach". The kid has got to get a chance to play, and make some mistakes and grow from it, and make good plays.

Don't expect much from Christian Hackenberg in Saturday's preseason opener. Because there were times a year ago where he just didn't feel good, "bloated" even.

"I'm not basing this game exclusively on Christian's star debut as a movie theater actor", Bowles said. The sophomore is in an open competition with Josh McCown and Bryce Petty. Bowles announced that Bilal Powell (neck) will not play, and the status of Matt Forte (hamstring) has not been determined.

Rookie running back Eli McGuire practiced with the first team on Thursday, and could start in the preseason opener.

"[It's] concentration, trying too hard", Bowles said. "I just want to get [Hackenberg] in early and see what he does". He's gonna get a lot of reps. He barely played, so it'll be his first time out. "Whether he plays good or bad doesn't determine his reps for the next week or after that". "If he commands the offense and does the things he's supposed to do, that's progress, and we'll go from there". Bowles said preseason games carry "a little more" weight than camp practices, as they should. He'll be on the spot Saturday night against the Tennessee Titans.

Bowles also said that Hackenberg will receive plenty of opportunities to prove himself during the preseason.
