Todd Bowles: Hackenberg Has Things to Build Off

Here is what Todd Bowles had to say to the media last night after the Jets’ preseason opening win over the Tennessee Titans.

*Bowles seemed relatively pleased with the play of Christian Hackenberg. He indicated there are some things the young quarterback can build off.

*Bowles confirmed that the plan was generally to give Hackenberg short throws in this game. He did note there were a few plays where the primary option was a  covered deep receiver that led Hackenberg to move onto a shorter option. This was the correct read.

*The defensive linemen doing sprints during the game was something they did on their own to stay in shape.

*In terms of injuries, Dylan Donahue did not play because he is dealing with a shoulder issue. Doug Middleton injured his pectoral muscle during the game.
