The Jets’ top two quarterbacks, Michael Vick and Geno Smith, are both dealing with aches, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see third-stringer Matt Simms in Sunday’s home game against the Steelers.
Vick will start the game, and should be good to go, barring any setbacks this week to his lingering foot injury that had him limping after Sunday’s loss at the Chiefs – his first start with the Jets. Vick left the game for a series after banging his head on the turf, but he returned once he was cleared by the NFL’s concussion examination procedures.
“He had a foot injury that I think we’re more concerned with than the other (head injury),” Ryan said. “He passed the concussion protocol and all that. If anything, he’s got a foot that keeps getting stepped on. I think that’s the biggest concern right now.”
