The New York Jets may have no other option but to start rookie Geno Smith under center for Week 1.
Mark Sanchez, who was hurt late in the Jets third preseason game, could miss multiple weeks according to ESPN’s Ed Werder on SportsCenter.
This situation is ongoing as is the quarterback battle in New York.
Since the status of Sanchez is still up in the air so is the starting job.
Rex Ryan won't concede that Mark Sanchez won the Jets QB competition: "I think that's an assumption." #nyj

The Jets will start Smith (or Sanchez if healthy) in their Sept. 8 match-up against Tampa Bay. For those who play fantasy football this makes the Buccaneers defense a must start in Week 1.
