Jets’ Devin Smith hospitalized with broken ribs

Jets rookie receiver Devin Smith suffered broken ribs today at training camp, and the injury was serious enough that he needed to be hospitalized.

The Jets announced that Smith will stay at a local hospital overnight and is expected to miss most if not all of the rest of training camp. He suffered the broken ribs on a leaping catch in practice.

A second-round draft pick out of Ohio State, Smith was expected to compete as a rookie to be the Jets’ third receiver, behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Missing training camp will make that a lot tougher.
