The New York Post ran a story today about Geno Smith throwing on his own outside his apartment complex. Jets head coach Todd Bowles was not happy to hear about this.

Bowles says Geno was instructed not to partake in any physical activity right now. Guarding against infection. #NYJ— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 16, 2015
Though Bowles isn't happy with Geno throwing, the coach said he won't be disciplining the QB for it.— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) August 16, 2015
Bowles also indicated the Jets are expecting Geno's healing time to be 6-10 weeks.

At this point, I'm ready to move past the story. It has been exhausting. The Jets are preparing Ryan Fitzpatrick to be their starting quarterback now. If Fitzpatrick plays well, he will continue to be the starter. If he doesn't, Geno might get a chance to take over.
