Jets place QB Geno Smith on in­jured re­serve with torn

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

The New York Jets have placed quar­ter­back Geno Smith on in­jured re­serve with a torn knee lig­a­ment.

Smith in­jured the ACL in his right knee in the sec­ond quar­ter of the Jets’ 24-16 win over Bal­ti­more on Sun­day. An MRI on Mon­day re­vealed the sever­ity of the in­jury , and a sec­ond ex­am­i­na­tion on Tues­day ap­par­ently con­firmed the torn ACL, which will end Smith’s sea­son.

Smith is a free agent af­ter the sea­son and un­likely to be re­signed by New York.

Ryan Fitz­patrick, benched in fa­vor of Smith last Sun­day, will start this week­end at Cleve­land.

To re­place Smith on the ros­ter Wed­nes­day, the Jets signed line­backer Tai­wan Jones.
