Jets | GM allowed Geno Smith to practice

New York Jets general manager John Idzik allowed QB Geno Smith (ankle) to resume practicing Sunday, Aug. 11, knowing that he was bothered by a sprained ankle. Idzik is a big proponent of Smith in the quarterback competition with QB Mark Sanchez, and he's made it known that he has the final say on that matter over head coach Rex Ryan. Smith had his worst day of practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, and Ryan admitted that his ankle was not 100 percent. Sanchez is likely to win the job if Smith doesn't play in the team's second preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez had a leg up all along, but Smith's ankle injury has set him back considerably. This doesn't mean that Smith won't eventually become the starter at some point this year if Sanchez struggles early. Avoid both QBs in shallow formats.
