Found August 17, 2013 on One Jet At A Time:
Still a competition? We'll find out later on, but for now, Geno Smith has been ruled out of tonight's game vs the Jags.  Smith rolled his ankle on the turf in Detriot, during the Jets' first preseason game. Since, Smith had been playing with a noticiable limp in practices, and had a 3 INT day, which Rex Ryan called "brutal."  If Smith wasn't healthy enough to start, he shouldn't have been healthy enough to play, so it shouldn't appear too one-sided of a call, on anybody's part.  The 'Other' QBs Greg McElroy has also been a little 'gimpy' in practices, as NYP's Brian Costello described it, but is active for tonight. Still, with Mark Sanchez playing all of the first half, Matt Simms may be the Jets' QB for the third and fourth quarters, with McElroy playing an emergency role.
