New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan confirmed on Monday that quarterback Geno Smith has been benched.
That means that Michael Vick will get the start for the Jets next week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ryan left the door open for Smith to regain the starters role later this year but more than likely the Jets will again try their luck in the draft.
Geno has made eight starts, completing 56.2 percent of his passes while scoring eight touchdowns to 12 turnovers.
It’s quite possible the end is near for Smith and Ryan. The Jets currently have a 1-7 record.
