With McElroy’s Knee Injury, Simms Gets The Start

Jets_Matt_Simms_2013There’s apparently a very good — and pressing — reason the New York Jets signed Green Bay Packers cast-off quarterback Graham Harrell.

They are running out of healthy quarterbacks for the final preseason game.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Jets third-stringer Greg McElroy re-injured his knee in practice this week, which leaves Matt Simms as the expected starter in tomorrow’s preseason finale.

Mark Sanchez is currently rehabbing his shoulder injury, and if Simms is starting, they’re simply holding back Geno Smith to have him ready for the regular season (unless Sanchez is well and chosen to start).
