Jets Starting Geno Smith, Not Michael Vick In Week 13

The New York Jets announced Wednesday morning that they will be starting Geno Smith in Week 13 after HC Rex Ryan met with him and Michael Vick.

Reports from Tuesday indicated that the Jets were likely to do just the opposite and go with Vick for another game, despite his obvious struggles against the Bills last weekend.

Vick wound up being replaced by Smith after he threw an interception to Bills S Duke Williams. However, Vick also sustained an injury before that play took place, so that likely factored into the interception to some degree.

He ultimately finished Monday’s game completing just 7-of-19 passes for just 76 yards and an interception.

Vick, 34, is in the final year of his contract and will be an unrestricted free agent next season, but it’s hard to say that his play has been good enough for him to secure another opportunity outside of a possible backup position.
