Jets | Geno Smith's availability in question

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:06:56 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith's (shoulder) availability for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs is in question, and he's experiencing "minor soreness." However, head coach Rex Ryan downplayed the severity of Smith's injury, and said the team hopes he can resume throwing by Wednesday, Oct. 29. QB Matt Simms will be ready just in case.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be avoided everywhere after it was announced that Michael Vick ($4,400; 8.8% of cap) will start against the Chiefs. It's not a wise move to rely on Vick in his first start of the season.
