Draft Scout Geno Smith News
09/04/16 - QB Geno Smith will be the Jets' No. 2 quarterback. Smith never had a chance to unseat starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and his backup job appeared as if it might be in danger when second-year QB Bryce Petty played well in exhibition play. But Smith, who has made 29 starts for the Jets since 2013, provides the experience that Petty, who has yet to play in a regular season game, lacks.
08/21/16 - QB Geno Smith helped put the Jets in a 14-2 hole in the first half, when his three series ended with a three-and-out, an interception and a turnover on downs. The Redskins scored their touchdowns immediately after the three-and-out and the pick, which was a Smith special in which he inexplicably threw into triple coverage.
11/02/15 - QB Geno Smith suffered rib and shoulder injuries while absorbing hits in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders. It will be determined later this week whether or not he will be available for this Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
11/01/15 - QB Geno Smith made his season debut Sunday in a 34-20 loss to Oakland and first appearance since Dec. 28, 2014, against Miami. Smith, the Jets' starter the previous two seasons, suffered a broken jaw on Aug. 11 when ex-teammate IK Enemkpali punched him during an argument in the locker room. Smith, who had been active since Week 3 against Philadelphia, replaced an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick (torn ligaments, left thumb) early in the first quarter. He completed 27 of 42 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. "I felt ready," Smith said. "I've been getting enough reps in practice and doing a bunch in the classroom so we were on the same page." Smith was injured with 54 seconds left to play on a sack when he was hit in the abdomen. His head snapped back and hit the turf hard as he landed. Fitzpatrick, the Jets' only other active quarterback, returned to the game for two plays, despite his thumb injury. Smith returned after that and finished the game. Earlier in the half, Smith took a huge hit on his left shoulder from Raiders cornerback David Amerson along the right sideline at the end of a 29 run. Smith said he's "not sure" if he'll miss time because of his injuries. "We did X-rays on my shoulder," Smith said. "My abdomen feels good. Still got to monitor everything and get in the treatment this week."
09/28/15 - QB Geno Smith was active for the first time this season Sunday, when he served as the backup to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Jets' 24-17 loss to the Eagles. Smith was inactive for the first two games as he recovered from a broken jaw sustained during a locker room fight with ex-teammate IK Enemkpali on Aug. 11. Head coach Todd Bowles said following a Week 2 win over Indianapolis that Fitzpatrick would remain the starter even when Smith was cleared to return, a stance he repeated after Fitzpatrick struggled in Sunday's loss.
