Michael Vick to start for Jets against Chiefs
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Rex Ryan has announced that Michael Vick will start at quarterback over Geno Smith in the New York Jets' game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Ryan says Monday that the decision "isn't any long-term deal or whatever," but adds that it is "the right decision for this time."
Smith, in his second season, was benched in the first quarter of the Jets' 43-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after throwing interceptions on three consecutive possessions. Vick took over and provided a spark, leading the Jets to a touchdown on his first drive, but also committed three turnovers of his own.
Smith injured his right shoulder during the game when he made a touchdown-saving tackle on his final interception, but Ryan says it isn't serious.
