Fitzpatrick and Smith uncertain for Week 9

By Jared Smola | Updated on Wed, 19 Jul 2017, 10:51 AM EDT

Jets QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are both uncertain for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.  Fitzpatrick suffered ligament damage in his left hand in yesterday's loss to the Raiders and will need surgery at some point, according to HC Todd Bowles.  But it sounds like he'll put off that surgery for now.  Bowles labeled Fitzpatrick day-to-day.  Smith, meanwhile, is dealing with a "big bruise" on his left shoulder, per Bowles.  There's no structural damage to the non-throwing wing.  Bowles said that the team is exploring trade options for a QB.  Rookie Bryce Petty is the only healthy QB on the roster right now.
