Pennington will be third QB vs. Texans
If Pennington enters the game for the Jets (1-4) before the fourth quarter, Testaverde and Bollinger would not be able to return.
Coach Herman Edwards said Wednesday there is a 50-50 chance Pennington will start the Jets' following game, against Philadelphia. Pennington has been cleared to practice and is not listed on the team's injury report.
Edwards will decide whether to start Pennington against the Eagles based on practice this week. Pennington will not comment on his progress.
"You can't worry about Chad, because Vinny's the quarterback, he's going to have to play good again and we're going to have to help him," Edwards said.
Testaverde is not even thinking about the day Pennington returns to the lineup.
"Whatever is best to help the team win, that's the bottom line," Testaverde said. "We all know what's going to happen. When the time comes, I'll deal with it in my own way."
