Despite reporting earlier today that Geno Smith was expected to be “fine” based on preliminary exams, he is now reporting that Smith does in fact have a torn ACL and will be out for the remainder of the season.
Sources: Based on initial MRI, belief is that #Jets QB Geno Smith tore his ACL. Incredible. Players in the locker room are learning about it

The injury couldn’t come at a more frustrating time for Smith, who was named the team’s starter after falling to 1-5 last week with Ryan Fitzpatrick being sent to the bench.
Now, it would appear anyway, that Fitzpatrick will be back under center this Sunday.
