Jets announce Geno Smith will start the season opener.
It was a decision to be expected and even official back-up Michael Vick said that everyone should have seen this coming. The plan all along was for Vick to play behind Smith while helping to mentor and develop him. Was he also there to maybe help push him a little? Of course. But the starting job was never really in any danger. Smith is a low-end quarterback to be used in deep 2-QB leagues. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
