Jets QB Geno Smith leaves game with injury
As he tries to compete against Mark Sanchez for the starting Jets quarterback job, Geno Smith appeared to injure his ankle Friday.
Mark Sanchez had a mixed night of results in the preseason opener vs. the Lions on Friday, leaving the quarterback competition wide open, but Geno Smith injured his ankle in the third quarter, and he has yet to return to the game.
Instead, third-string quarterback Greg McElroy has entered the game as reports trickled in that Smith was having his right ankle taped on the bench.
The injury occurred when Smith had to leave the pocket, and while scrambling, he tried to cut to his right. Unfortunately for Smith, he appeared to turn his ankle and went down to the turf without taking any contact.
He limped off the field and a few minutes later, Smith slowly walked to the locker room with a team trainer.
After Sanchez completed 10 of 13 passes for 125 yards, a touchdown and an interception, Smith went 6 for 7 for 47 yards on the night.
