Jets | Geno Smith has strong practice
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 16:05:37 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith had a great practice Wednesday, Aug. 21, going 15-for-16 in 11-on-11 drills with two touchdowns. "It wasn't brutal that's for sure," head coach Rex Ryan said in reference to Smith's performance. "That was a great day; I don't know if that was his best day because he's had a lot of good ones but he had a great one today." He was in total command and had some success against the first-team defense. QB Mark Sanchez went 10-for-14 with a touchdown but also took three sacks. Ryan has yet to name a starter for the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24.
Smith is hanging around in the quarterback competition now that he over his ankle injury. We still expect Sanchez to begin the season as the starter, but this isn't a lock by any means. Don't look to take either QB on draft day, though.
