The Jets have placed Smith (knee) on IR.

EDGE Analysis

No surprise here, as Smith suffered a torn ACL during the second quarter of the Jets' win over the Ravens in Week 7. With Smith done for the season, Ryan Fitzpatrick is back atop the team's QB depth chart, with Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg slotting in behind him.

Smith's torn ACL has been confirmed by coach Todd Bowles and he will miss the remainder of this season.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's season frustratingly ends just after he was given his first start of the campaign Sunday. Furthermore, he'll now enter free agency this offseason coming off a serious knee injury, which could impact his availability for the start of next season. In Smith's absence, Ryan Fitzpatrick will reclaim the Jets' starting quarterback job, with Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg set to compete for backup duties.

Smith (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was initially thought to have avoided a serious injury, but the initial results of Monday's MRI are believed to suggest otherwise. To pin down a definitive diagnosis, Smith will visit Dr. James Andrew on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. If his torn ACL is confirmed, Smith would miss the remainder of this season, paving the way for Ryan Fitzpatrick to reclaim the Jets' starting quarterback job.

Smith's knee is believed to be "fine", but he'll still undergo an MRI on Monday as a precaution, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was kept out of Sunday's game after twisting his knee while getting tackled during the second quarter. While the extent of his problem is unclear at the moment, Smith's knee injury evidently isn't thought to be serious. Monday's MRI should help clarify his situation, at which point his outlook for upcoming action should be sorted out as well.

Smith will have an MRI on his knee after getting knocked out of Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to Kimberley Martin of Newsday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith, who completed four of eight passes for 95 yards and a touchdown, was forced out in the second quarter after suffering the injury while getting tackled, and with Ryan Fitzpatrick leading the Jets to a victory, it's unclear if Smith will get an opportunity to win the job back when he's fully healthy.

Smith was officially named the Jets' starting quarterback by head coach Todd Bowles on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick in Monday's game against the Cardinals after throwing yet another red-zone interception, and while Smith was also picked off in his limited playing time, Fitzpatrick's struggles over the course of the season have landed him on the no. 2 spot on the depth chart. Smith was a fairly weak fantasy option when he was the starter a few years ago, and with Brandon Marshall his only established wideout, it's tough to see a fantasy breakout happening anytime soon.

The Jets are expected to name Smith their starting quarterback Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not clear if this is a short-term or long-term plan, and the move will not be official until confirmed by either the Jets or head coach Todd Bowles, but it appears Smith is set to replace Ryan Fitzpatrick as the team's primary quarterback.

Head coach Todd Bowles may be considering a switch of signal-callers for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Rich CImini of ESPN.com reports. "I did re-visit [the situation between Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith]," Bowles said Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Down 21-3 late in the third quarter and in the red zone, Ryan Fitzpatrick tossed a back-breaking interception and was replaced by Geno Smith on the Jets' ensuing drive. Smith fared OK, completing four of six passes for 31 yards, but his final attempt was picked off by the Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu. Afterward, Bowles merely referred to Smith as a "relief" option, but his state of mind has seemingly been altered following the return trip to the east coast. Before a decision between Fitzpatrick and Smith is made, Bowles will touch base with the coaching staff and general manager Mike Maccagnan.

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

EDGE Analysis

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, completed 4 of 6 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.
