FLORHAM PARK - Rex Ryan is closing in on his decision in the Jets' daily starting quarterback battle.

Ryan has yet to name a starter for opening day next month, let alone for this Saturday's preseason game against the Giants. However, quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and newly drafted Geno Smith insist they'll play whatever role Ryan requests.

Smith took most of the snaps in practice Wednesday, but says his ankle still hurts and that the odds of his starting this weekend may be in jeopardy.
