Smith (knee) made his one-year deal with the Giants official after passing his physical Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith is coming off a torn ACL suffered in Week 7 of last season, but after medical testing revealed no red flags with his condition, the former Jets quarterback has now officially switched his New York colors. According to Smith, he expects be ready by the time training camp rolls around, which bodes well for his chance of securing the Giants' No. 2 gig behind starter Eli Manning, who is yet to miss a single start in his 13-year career due to injury.

Smith (knee) agreed in principle to a contract with the Giants on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He's expected to take a physical over the weekend and officially sign with the team Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants addressed the depth behind starting quarterback Eli Manning by inking journeyman Josh Johnson to a deal earlier in the day, but it now looks like Smith will be the leading contender for top backup duties. After a tumultuous four-year run with the Jets that included only three appearances over his final two seasons with the team while Ryan Fitzpatrick served as the team's primary signal caller, Smith should face significantly less pressure to perform in joining New York's other team. Manning has been a picture for durability throughout his tenure with the Giants -- having not missed a start due to injury at any point in his career -- so it's likely that any action Smith gets this season will come in the second half of blowouts.

Smith (knee) visited with the Giants on Saturday, the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

A 2013 second-round selection, Smith struggled through the first two years of his rookie contract, and then spent the past two seasons mostly serving as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup. Smith actually got a shot to replace Fitzpatrick as the starter in Week 7 last season, but the 26-year-old promptly suffered a torn ACL. Smith said he expects to be ready for training camp, with his recovery coming along as expected through five months. He hopes to find a shot to compete for a starting job, but he did admit that he may need to settle for a backup role. The Giants' No. 2 QB from last season, Ryan Nassib (elbow), is an unrestricted free agent who is also recovering from surgery.

The Jets believe that Smith (knee) may not be healthy until September, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith received an opportunity to start for the underwhelming Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 7, only to sustain a torn ACL in the first half of that contest. Such injuries are accompanied by lengthy recoveries, so a September return is on the optimistic side, in most scenarios. Having said that, Smith thinks he'll be healthy by training camp and even stated a willingness to serve as a backup, which would open more doors as he embarks on unrestricted free agency this offseason. Whichever team provides Smith with his next opportunity, there's little doubt that his recovery will impact his potential to play in 2017.

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.

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.

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.
