Smith was pulled from the Jets’ 24-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens when he suffered an injury to his right knee that led the team to perform an MRI that has apparently come back clean.
If healthy, Jets fans should expect to see Smith under center on Sunday when the team heads to Cleveland to take on the Browns.
