Smith was sidelined for Gang Green's first two games of the year, but coach Todd Bowles said the third-year passer "could be" active for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
With the Jets off to a hot start, Bowles confirmed this week that Smith, no matter his status, will continue to back up veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, saying Tuesday: "Ryan is the starting quarterback right now. I mean, we're going good. We have good chemistry and everything else. Geno understands that."
It's apparent that Smith's future with the team is on the rocks. Hand-picked by the previous regime, he might not see the field all season if The Amish Rifle continues to play efficient ball. To date, Fitzpatrick has exhibited confidence on the field and made his share of throws.
