NEW YORK (AP) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has a sprained knee and his status for New York's game Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams is uncertain.

Coach Todd Bowles announced Monday that Fitzpatrick is ''day to day'' and will be evaluated as the week progresses.

Fitzpatrick injured his left knee during the third quarter of the Jets' 27-23 loss at Miami on Sunday. The quarterback left for a series and was replaced by Bryce Petty but returned and finished the game while wearing a brace on the knee. It was heavily wrapped when he spoke to the media afterward.

While the injury is not believed to be serious, Bowles says Petty would start Sunday if Fitzpatrick is not ready to play.

Bowles adds that if healthy, ''Fitz gives us the best chance to win.''
