Jets lose QBs, lose RBs to injuries
- by admin
NEW YORK — New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith and running back Shane Vereen both suffered injuries against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, but both returned to practice Wednesday.
Smith, who missed last week’s game with a sprained left ankle, was limited.
He was limited in Wednesday’s practice, but coach Todd Bowles said he felt he was 100 percent on his own Wednesday.
Vereens left the game with an ankle injury, but Bowles was hopeful the two would be able to play in Thursday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
Bowles didn’t say what type of injury Verees sustained.
Smith has completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 1,858 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Jets (2-5) are tied for the worst record in the NFL, with a 5-2 record.
Vreen, a fifth-round pick in 2013, has rushed for 981 yards and seven touchdowns.
He’s caught two touchdowns in his last two games.
Vontae Davis is the team’s leading rusher with 798 yards, but he is on the shelf with a hamstring injury.
