While Vick isn't currently injured, players with multiple concussions in their history, including one that caused an extended absence, are at higher risk to suffer further brain traumas. Given the league's sensitivity to concussions, Vick is at higher risk to miss time in upcoming seasons due to his history of brain trauma.

Summary

At this point in the offseason, Michael Vick has said that second-year quarterback Geno Smith is the starter, a sentiment reportedly echoed by the other players, if not outright by the team yet. Vick was brought in to challenge Smith though, and he will push him. We know Vick still has something left in the tank and he is familiar with Marty Mornhinweg's offense from their time together in Philadelphia. If Smith stumbles--either in camp, preseason or early in the regular season--Vick will get a shot and he would be able to excel with the receivers and run game the Jets have put together. Of course, while he has gas left in the tank, Vick also has a propensity towards injury and it's unlikely he'd finish a season in one piece. That issue, along with the likelihood Smith wins the job, make Vick risky as anything but bench depth with upside in the deeper leagues of fantasy. (May 22)

Jets | Geno Smith gets most of first-team snaps (Tue Aug 12, 12:02 PM) - New York Jets QB Geno Smith took 19 first-team snaps in the team's practice Tuesday, Aug. 12. QB Michael Vick took two first-team snaps.

Our View: Vick is certainly one of the few backup QBs who would be instantly relevant in fantasy leagues if the starter goes down. Smith is going to start as long as he is healthy and competent, but Vick looked good in the first preseason game and is far from washed up.

Jets | Could use Michael Vick in special packages (Mon Aug 11, 12:31 PM) - New York Jets QB Michael Vick could be used this year in special packages as a change-of-pace quarterback, head coach Rex Ryan hinted. The team ran an entire period of Wildcat plays in practice Saturday, Aug. 9. Ryan has called Vick a 'special talent' and has long been a fan of the Wildcat.

Our View: The Jets are smart to say this, even if they are feigning interest in using Vick as a "package" QB. Vick presents different challenges that a defense will have to spend valuable prep time on during game weeks if there is even a threat of him being mixed in this way.
