Geno Smith’s ups far outweighed by downs on and off field as ACL injury ends tenure with Jets

Starship 7 Enterprises boldly tried to go where no quarterback had gone since man first walked on the Moon before getting lost somewhere in Deep Space.

Geno Smith’s bizarre four-year trip through the Jets cosmos is over.

The mercurial signal caller’s season-ending ACL injury will effectively end his tenure with the team that drafted him. He’ll be a free agent after the season. Unless the pencil pusher who selected Smith in the second round returns to Northern New Jersey, this quarterback won’t be back with the Jets.

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s struggles opened the door for Smith, who started his first game Sunday since the 2014 season finale. His grand re-opening last 1 ½ quarters before getting hurt on a second-quarter sack by the Ravens.

Although Smith said after the game that he “was begging to go back out there,” the organization feared the worst. Team medical personnel administered a manual laxity test before making a preliminary determination that the player had likely suffered a torn knee ligament. An MRI on Monday confirmed it. It’s impossible to know the extent of meniscus damage, if any, until surgery.

“It sucks,” Brandon Marshall said. “It sucks for Geno and it sucks for our team. But this year has been filled with adversity.”
