Jets quarterback Geno Smith left his first start since Week 17 of the 2014 season in the second quarter after being sacked by Ravens linebacker Matt Judon and did not return to action due to a knee injury.

Smith did return to the sideline during the second half while wearing street clothes and watched as Ryan Fitzpatrick and the offense took advantage of two Joe Flacco interceptions to come back for a 24-16 victory. Smith said after the game that he expects to get an MRI, but doesn’t expect anything too bad from the results.

Coach Todd Bowles wouldn’t answer a question about who would start if Smith is healthy enough to play, saying it’s “too early” to make such a determination.
