FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be a game-time decision to play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday after being listed as questionable with a sprained knee.

Fitzpatrick participated on a limited basis during all three practice sessions this week. Coach Todd Bowles says Friday that the quarterback is getting ''better,'' but his status will be determined before the game.

Bryce Petty, a fourth-rounder last year, will get his first NFL start if Fitzpatrick is unable to play.

Fitzpatrick injured his left knee at Miami last Sunday during New York's 27-23 loss.

As expected, center Nick Mangold has been ruled out for the third straight game with a sprained right ankle. Wesley Johnson will again start in his place.

Also ruled out are linebackers Bruce Carter and Josh Martin, cornerback Marcus Williams and tight end Kellen Davis.
