Geno Smith May Not Play on Saturday Night vs Jaguars

Now this might be an interesting turn of events.

We have known that Geno Smith, despite rolling his ankle on Friday night, has not missed any practice time. Does that mean he is going to start on Saturday night?

We don’t know. Actually, we don’t know if Geno is even going to play.

Geno had a practice today that coach Ryan addressed as “brutal”. He went on, when asked about Saturday night, to tell the press that Geno’s ankle is not close to 100%. As such, it is not out of the question that he won’t play at all in the game against Jacksonville.

Obviously, this won’t bode will for Geno as far as his standing in the quarterback competition, which will not delight many members of the fan base. But, it also brings up another question. If his ankle is as not ready as Rex says, why was he practicing all week?

Shouldn’t he have been given time off to rest the ankle?
