Defensive end Aaron Smith did nothing more in practice Tuesday than he has been doing, and he will not play Sunday.
Smith has not played since Week 7 against the Dolphins. He is one of the best 3-4 ends in the game against the run. Even had he been able to go, he likely would have seen limited snaps and been rusty.
Now the Jets officially have a backup right tackle, Wayne Hunter, lining up against a backup end, Ziggy Hood.
