New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start Week 1 of the regular season after teammate Geno Smith suffered a broken jaw Tuesday, according to ESPN. Smith had been receiving the majority of first-team reps in training camp, but Fitzpatrick will now assume starting duties ahead of rookie Bryce Petty while Smith is sidelined.

Fitzpatrick (leg) participated in team drills during Wednesday's OTAs, Manish Mehta of the Daily News reports.

Meanwhile, fellow QB Geno Smith took the majority of the Jets' first-team reps in 11-on-11 work Wednesday. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey relayed last week that Smith is on track to remain the Jets' starting quarterback, with Fitzpatrick -- who now appears past the fractured leg that ended his 2014 season -- in line to provide the team with a veteran backup/insurance policy at the position.

The Texans traded Fitzpatrick (leg) to the Jets on Wednesday in exchange for a conditional late-round draft pick, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Per the report, the Texans are in line to receive a 2016 seventh-rounder that could become a sixth-round choice, based on Fitzpatrick's playing time in 2015. With the Jets, Fitzpatrick will be reunited with the team's new offensive coordinator, Chan Gailey, who was the Bills head coach from 2010-12, a span in which Fitzpatrick played for (and saw starting duty with) Buffalo. Given that new coach Todd Bowles has held off on declaring returnee Geno Smith as the Jets' starting QB in advance of this coming season, Fitzpatrick will presumably be afforded an opportunity to compete for the job.

Fitzpatrick (leg) is likely to be traded to the Jets once fellow QB Brian Hoyer officially signs with the Texans, the Daily News reports.

Once Hoyer is in the fold, with Ryan Mallett also in the Texans' QB mix, Fitzpatrick -- on track to earn $3.25 million in base salary in 2015 -- will be the odd man out in Houston. With the Jets, Fitzpatrick would represent an experienced backup/veteran alternative to third-year signal-caller Geno Smith.

Fitzpatrick (leg) is roughly two months away from being able to work out again, Drew Dougherty of the team's official site reports.

Fitzpatrick is currently on season-ending IR due to a broken leg suffered Week 15, but the injury is likely to heal in time for the beginning of the 2015 season. It may limit him a bit in offseason workouts, but Fitzpatrick -- who is signed through next year -- expects to compete with Tom Savage for the starting gig in 2015.

Fitzpatrick completed 13-of-19 passes for 135 yards, while adding eight carries for 19 rushing yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-13 win over the Jaguars.

One week after throwing a franchise-record six touchdowns, Fitzpatrick had his second zero-touchdown game of the season and his third with fewer than 155 passing yards. The rushing touchdown, his second this season, made up for a lot of it, though the absence of Andre Johnson, who suffered a concussion in the second quarter, did nothing to help Fitzpatrick. Up next is a Week 15 matchup against the Colts, who are allowing the eighth-most passing yards per game this season, though it won't be as easy if Johnson misses out.
