Leggett makes his National Football League debut with Jets in preseason opener

He appeared less tentative than he's been in the past, his mechanics were improved and his sideline rapport with Josh McCown was continuous.

Vikings: Minnesota waived running back Bishop Sankey with an injured designation after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the preseason opener.

But despite the caution exercised with their second-year signal caller, Hackenberg came nowhere close to repeating the sins of yesteryear.

From everyone here at The Jet Press, we hope you enjoy our coverage of tonight's first game of the preseason for the Jets. His line this time was 18-for-25, for 127 yards and no touchdowns - a far cry from a year ago - when he went 11-for-31 for only 54 yards against the Eagles.

And though Hackenberg was the marquee attraction on Saturday, he was hardly the only positive. On the first, Josh McCown moved the Jets 78 yards in eight plays. In fact, for a team going into the season with the lowest of expectations, their performance against the Titans was something of a coup. It's all about seeing what backups and third-stringers can do in real game simulations and also testing out certain packages and plays in games that don't even matter. Petty completed two of six passes for 16 yards.

After having a touchdown reception called back, the Titans drive stalled and they were forced to settle for a Ryan Succop field goal to get on the board. When it was first team vs. first team - the Jets limited the Titans to 28 yards on two series. One of his punts went only 14 yards, and he failed to pin the Titans offense deep in Jets' territory.

Bryce Petty took over with a minute left in the third quarter and finished the game.

The much-discussed Jets wide receiving corps did OK on Saturday night. McCown hit Robby Anderson on a 53 yard rocket three plays into the game. Anderson had three catches for 71 yards, and Chris Harper, continuing his solid play from training camp, caught two balls for 21 yards. The Jets' defense had eight sacks in the game.
