Smith will continue to be the backup quarterback despite coming on for Ryan Fitzpatrick during Monday's loss to the Cardinals, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Fitzpatrick threw a red-zone interception at the end of the third quarter with the Jets losing 21-3, though Smith wasn't all that much better, completing four of six passes for 31 yards while also throwing an interception. Smith was never a reliable fantasy option when he was the starter, which is why the Jets will continue to roll with Fitzpatrick under center.
