Vick (calf) will start for the Jets in Week 13, as long as he is healthy and head coach Rex Ryan retains the right to decide who starts at quarterback for the Jets, the New York Daily News reports.
Those are a couple big "ifs," as those above Ryan could force him to go back to Geno Smith, and Vick's health is uncertain, but it appears Vick is still Ryan's guy for now. The Jets play on Monday again next week, so they may not reveal who will start at quarterback in Week 13 for another couple days.

Speaking after Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he isn't sure who will start at quarterback in Week 13 against the Dolphins, Seth Walder of the NY Daily News reports.
Poor play and injuries may both factor into the decision, as Vick underwent X-rays for an undisclosed issue, after completing just 7-of-19 passes for 76 yards in Monday's game, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Vick was removed in favor of Geno Smith midway through the third quarter, following an interception that allowed the Bills to take a 31-3 lead. Smith fared a bit better than Vick in garbage time, completing 10-of-12 passes for 89 yards, albeit with zero points on four drives. Regardless of which player is under center, the New York passing game will likely struggle in a difficult Week 13 matchup with the Dolphins.

Vick, who suffered a head injury in Sunday's game against the Chiefs but was able to return, completed 21 of 28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown, and added 18 rushing yards on four carries in a 24-10 loss.
Vick got the start ahead of Geno Smith, who was benched in the first quarter of last week's game and was officially inactive this week due to a shoulder injury. Vick connected with wideout Percy Harvin nine times for 99 yards, and threw his lone touchdown pass to wideout Eric Decker in the second quarter. While he was fairly accurate, it wasn't a great performance, and there is already talk that Geno Smith could start in Week 10 against the Steelers, which would obviously return Vick to the backup role.
