Jets coach Rex Ryan praised Geno Smith's late-season development Friday, but wouldn't commit to him as the starter going into training camp, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Smith has been saying all the right things, embracing competition, and showing confidence in himself. Still, don't be surprised in the Jets look to take a QB in the draft, to hedge their bets.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
