New York Jets QB Bryce Petty recalls the football sandwich he once took at the hands of Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh.
New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty has a sense of humor.
On Friday, Petty responded to a follower on Twitter who had asked him if he had any nightmares about Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake. The quarterback responded saying that he doesn’t have any nightmares but he does have a moment of silence every time he has a sandwich.
I wouldn't say nightmares but I do pause and take a moment of silence every time I eat a sandwich ? https://t.co/i0asUtdJO1

The sandwich part is a reference to a play during a game against the Dolphins on Dec. 18 where the quarterback was literally part of a sandwich.
At the beginning of the fourth quarter of the game against the Dolphins, the quarterback was crushed by Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh. Despite the hit, the pass from the Jets quarterback on the play was completed. After the hit, Petty had a burning pain in his chest but wanted to stay in the game.
The next week, Petty started the game but he tore the labrum in his left shoulder while trying to tackle a defender during a fumble recovery.
The Jets still have to figure out who will be their quarterback. Maybe Petty could be their quarterback as long as he doesn’t end up being someone’s lunch.
