Head coach Rex Ryan said Friday that he "anticipates" Geno Smith will be the Jets' starting quarterback for the final five games of the season, with Vick as the backup, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.

Mehta's sources with the team indicate that the coaching staff would rather go with Vick, but the Jets' front office brass wants to further evaluate Smith over the final month of the season. Assuming Smith stays healthy, Vick will have little value in most leagues the rest of the way.

Vick (calf) will serve as the backup quarterback behind Geno Smith in Monday's game against the Jets.

Vick was the favorite to hang onto the starting quarterback job for another week, but based on a report from Tuesday, either he will not be healthy enough to play Monday, or head coach Rex Ryan was overruled in his desire to keep Vick the starter. One way or another, Vick will back up Smith in Week 13.

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 is dealing with a foot issue as this coming Sunday's game against the Steelers approaches, Manish Mehta of the Daily News reports.

Vick, who missed one series during this past Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a head injury, is evidently dealing with a lingering foot issue, per the Star-Ledger, but despite the veteran quarterback's aches and pains, coach Rex Ryan declared Sunday that Vick would start Week 10's game against the Steelers.

Coach Rex Ryan relayed Sunday that Vick is slated to start next week's game against the Steelers, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

Though the Jets fell to 1-8 by losing to the Chiefs 24-10 on Sunday, Vick turned in a respectable effort, completing 21-for-28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown, while rushing four times for 18 yards. Though Vick suffered a head injury in the fourth quarter of the contest, he missed just one series, and is now on track to get at least one more start at QB for the Jets over Geno Smith.
