Former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy came off the bench Sunday to lead the New York Jets to a 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but head coach Rex Ryan isn’t committing to giving him his first NFL start.
According to The Associated Press, Ryan told reporters today he is undecided on his starting quarterback. Mark Sanchez has started every game. McElroy is third team. The Jets’ next game is Sunday at Jacksonville, which is the hometown of New York backup quarterback Tim Tebow, who was inactive against Arizona because of fractured ribs.
Ryan told reporters he expects to decide by the time the Jets practice Wednesday, according to AP.
