Jets add Matt Simms off practice squad

Michael Vick will start on Sunday for the New York Jets. While Vick has acknowledged that he needs to protect the football this week the Jets have added some insurance in the form of practice squad quarterback Matt Simms.

Geno Smith has a shoulder injury and is questionable to backup Vick. That leaves the Jets in need of someone on the bench in case Vick is injured.

Last season Simms appeared in three games going 16-of-31 for 156 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
