Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick participates in Wednesday's OTA practice


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) For the first time since suffering a broken leg last season, Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was participating in team drills during Wednesday's OTA practice, reports the Associated Press.

Fitzpatrick is expected to compete with Geno Smith for the starting quarterback role during training camp. However, Coach Todd Bowles said Fitzpatrick still needs to get more healthy and improve the velocity on his throws.


Jets OC Gailey: Geno Smith 'probably' Week 1 starter at QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said there would not be a quarterback competition during training camp and that incumbent QB Geno Smith would "probably" be the team's starter during Week 1 of the regular season, per the Daily News

Smith, who threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago, figured to be locked in a battle with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starter's role, instead will go into camp with the job his to lose, according to Gailey. 

"You see an awful lot of talent there … he can be pretty good if he can get it all together," Gailey said. 


Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be healthy for training camp


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said he is on schedule to be healthy to participate in training camp, the team announced.

"I'm on pace right now to be healthy for training camp," he said.

Fitzpatrick's 2014 season ended when he sustained a broken leg in December. He is expected to compete with Geno Smith for the starting quarterback role.


Jets QB Geno Smith vows to be better


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/6/2015) Geno Smith, who figures to be in a battle for the Jets starting quarterback job with Ryan Fitzpatrick, said Monday after the team's first voluntary workout that he needed to perform better this season, per Newsday

"In this league, there isn't room for excuses ... moral victories. I've got to put this team in a position to be successful," he said. 

Smith managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago.


Todd Bowles: Jets planning to add another quarterback


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Jets coach Todd Bowles is a fan of competition. 

Instead of being content with quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms competing for the starting job, Bowles, via the Newark Star-Ledger, said the team has plans to add a fourth signal caller to the mix

Bowles said this on a conference call with season-ticket holders. 

"Ryan's going to compete, as well as Geno's going to compete," Bowles said. "And we hope to add somebody else to help compete with that along with Simms."

That could mean many things, such as adding a veteran quarterback, a mid-to-late-rounder or someone looking to get back in the league. Or perhaps it's a sign the Jets want to take a quarterback — possibly Marcus Mariota — with the sixth overall pick if the opportunity arises. 


Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be ready for training camp


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/19/2015) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's coming back from a broken leg, said he'll be limited in OTAs but fully ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Geno Smith and Matt Simms will get more reps in OTAs, the report added.

Fitzpatrick is expected to start for the Jets after posting a 95.3 passer rating in 12 games with the Texans last season.


Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick favored to start for Jets


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) New Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to win the starting job, reports Metro New York. The Jets acquired Fitzpatrick from the Texans for a conditional 2016 seventh-round draft pick.

As the roster currently stands, Fitzpatrick, 32, will have to beat out Geno Smith and Matt Simms. In 12 games with Houston last year, Fitzpatrick completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 2,483 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

“He's head and shoulders the best quarterback on this roster and he wasn't brought in to be the backup or be a mentor,” the source said. “He was brought in to compete and earn that starting job and he's expected to do that.”

Report: Jets to pursue QB Ryan Fitzpatrick if available


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick looking like the odd man out in Houston, he will "jump to the top of the Jets' list after he's inevitably released," reports the New York Daily News. Fitzpatrick, 32, played for Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey in Buffalo.

Houston would clear $3.2 million in cap space by cutting Fitzpatrick. The Texans have re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett and are said to be on the verge of signing quarterback Brian Hoyer, making Fitzpatrick expendable.


Report: Texans bring back QB Ryan Mallett


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) The Texans re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett to a two-year, $7 million deal, reports the Houston Chronicle. Mallett is expected to compete with Brian Hoyer, who is set to sign with Houston on Tuesday, the paper said.

The signings make quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick expendable. Releasing Fitzpatrick would free up $3.2 million in cap space, the paper noted.

Mallett threw for 400 yards in three games last season, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Both Mallett and Hoyer played for Texans coach Bill O'Brien when he was an offensive assistant with the Patriots.


Report: QB Brian Hoyer heading to Texans


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) Free agent quarterback Brian Hoyer will sign with the Texans, reports NBC4 in Washington. Hoyer would compete for the starting job in Houston.

Hoyer started 13 games for the Browns last season, completing 55.3 percent of his throws for 3,326 yards and 12 touchdowns with 13 interceptions. The Jets also reportedly were interested in Hoyer, who is apparently reuniting with Texans coach Bill O'Brien.

Hoyer spent his first three seasons with the Patriots (2009-11). O'Brien served as New England's quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator during that time.

Houston is finalizing a deal to bring back quarterback Ryan Mallett, and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick remains under contract. Hoyer would have to beat out one or both for the starting role.


Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick: 'I'd love to' stay in Houston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick spoke to reporters for the first time since his suffering a season-ending broken leg injury on Monday, per ESPN. He expressed his desire to remain in Houston with the Texans. Fitzpatrick signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract in the offseason and is expected to remain under contract next season.

"I'd love to be here," Fitzpatrick said. "I think aside from all the football stuff, which we've talked about a lot, just the city of Houston, the family's settling in. ... We think it's a great place to live and raise a family."


Texans make it official, put Ryan Fitzpatrick on IR


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/16/2014) The Texans made it official Tuesday, placing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on injured reserve with a broken leg. Coach Bill O'Brien has said Thad Lewis or newly-signed Case Keenum will start Sunday against the Ravens.

Texans to decide between Thad Lewis, Case Keenum to start Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The Texans announced that Tom Savage will miss Week 16 against the Ravens due to a knee injury he suffered on the penultimate play of Sunday's loss against the Colts. The loss of Savage, Ryan Fitzpatrick (broken tibia) and Ryan Mallett (pectoral) means that the starting job will come down to Thad Lewis and newly-signed Case Keenum, coach Bill O'Brien told reporters, per the team's official website.

Lewis was signed to the 53-man active roster on Nov. 26, when Mallett landed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. He was the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart entering Sunday's game against Indianapolis before Fitzpatrick went down with a season-ending injury. Second-stringer Tom Savage took over for Fitzpatrick but hurt his knee late in the game. As a result, the team signed Case Keenum on Sunday night, who played eight games in 2013 with the Texans and is familiar with the offensive.

"He'd been in our system not long ago," O'Brien said of Keenum, per the Houston Chronicle. "A lot of the things we're doing are what we were doing. He's a bright guy."


Texans to place quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on IR


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) After undergoing surgery Monday morning to repair a broken leg, the Texans announced they will place quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on injured reserve.

Fitzpatrick sustained the injury during the Texans' loss to the Colts Sunday. He joins Ryan Mallett as the second quarterback to be placed on IR by the Texans.


Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick set for surgery Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The fractured tibia Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered Week 15 against Indianapolis was a clean break. According to Tania Ganguli of ESPN, Fitzpatrick will have a rod inserted in his leg during his season-ending surgery on Monday.

Fitzpatrick started 12 of Houston's 14 games this season after winning the starting job in preseason. He passed for 2,541 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Fitzpatrick will become the second Houston quarterback to have his season cut short due to injury. Ryan Mallett suffered a torn pectoral muscle in his first start of the season. At this point, Tom Savage appears to be in the driver's seat to take over the starting job Week 16 against Baltimore.


Texans' Ryan Fitzpatrick will miss rest of season with broken leg


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a fractured leg during Sunday's game against the Colts, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports. He will need surgery which will cost him the final two games of the season.

Fitzpatrick sustained the injury on a 2-yard scramble in the second quarter and was replaced by Tom Savage.

Fitzpatrick started the season as the No. 1 quarterback before O'Brien benched him in favor of Ryan Mallett in Week 12. Mallett suffered a season-ending injury to the pectoral muscle in his first game. Fitzpatrick appeared in 12 games and passed for 2,541 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

If Fitzpatrick is indeed out for the remainder of the season, coach Bill O'Brien will now have to decide between Savage and Thad Lewis moving forward. Lewis was inactive Week 15.


Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick carted off with apparent left leg injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was carted off the field in the first half of Sunday's game against the Colts with what appeared to be a left leg injury, per CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Fitzpatrick sustained the injury on a 2-yard scramble. Tom Savage took over for him in the second quarter. According to John Clayton of ESPN, the medical staff placed an air cast on Fitzpatrick's leg before he was carted off. He completed 3 of 6 passes for 30 yards and rushed for 16 yards on three carries before the team ruled him out got the remainder of the game.

The Texans will likely provide an update on his status after the game.


Texans' Ryan Fitzpatrick throws for no TDs following six-TD game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had quite the statistical letdown Week 14 at Jacksonville following a six-touchdown performance Week 13 against the Titans. However, the result was still the same -- a victory for Houston -- as the Texans prevailed 27-13.

Fitzpatrick, unfortunately, had no passing touchdowns Sunday. However, he did have a rushing touchdown. It was a 4-yard scramble that gave Houston a 10-7 lead in the second quarter.

Fitzpatrick completed 13 of 19 passes for 135 yards. He rushed for 19 yards on eight carries. The Texans are back in action Week 15 at Indianapolis.


Ryan Fitzpatrick seizes his opportunity


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) With Ryan Mallett sidelined (and in fact, out for the season) with a torn pectoral muscle, Ryan Fitzpatrick had an opportunity to reclaim the Texans starting quarterback job Week 13 at Houston and appeared to do exactly that with six touchdown passes on 358 yards.

And that's all I'm willing to take away from the performance.

He lost his job to the up-and-comer by being his typical, generally competent but occasionally erratic self, and then verified for the Texans once that up-and-comer went down that he's still the best option they have.

Did he go above and beyond to do so? Of course. But Fitzpatrick has been around long enough for us to know exactly who he is: a generally competent but occasionally erratic quarterback. He isn't the type who's going to throw for six touchdowns every week. Not even Ben Roethlisberger, as some have so painfully learned, is that.

I'm chalking this one up as an outlier and penciling in Fitzpatrick for 225 yards and 1-2 touchdown passes Week 14 at Jacksonville.


Ryan Fitzpatrick sets franchise record with six TD throws


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/30/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, in his first start since being benched, responded with a career performance in Sunday's whipping of the Titans. Fitzpatrick completed 24 of 33 throws for 358 yards and a franchise-record six touchdowns, posting a 147.5 passer rating.

Fitzpatrick got himself going with a 4th-and-2 scramble. Finding no one open, he took off up the middle for 14 yards. Four plays later, Fitzpatrick zipped an 8-yard touchdown to tight end Ryan Griffin. Fitzpatrick's favorite receiver was DeAndre Hopkins. They hooked up nine times for 238 yards, including 58- and 34-yard touchdowns.

Fitzpatrick also tossed scoring strikes to running back Arian Foster, wideout Andre Johnson and defensive end/tight end J.J. Watt. He doubled his previous career high of three touchdown passes.

Fitzpatrick will try to keep rolling Week 14 at Jacksonville.


Texans QB Tom Savage all but set as backup for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Bill O'Brien is "leaning towards" choosing Texans rookie Tom Savage over newly acquired veteran Thad Lewis as the backup quarterback to Ryan Fitzpatrick for the Sunday game against Tennessee, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

"It's very difficult to ask Thaddeus to come in here and pick up on this offense in three days and be the No. 2 guy Sunday," O'Brien said. "Tom has improved a lot. I think this week has been his best week of throwing the ball. He definitely has a grasp of our offense."

The promotion has Savage smiling, but he's not getting complacent.

"Whether your're two or three, you're always preparing to be the guy at some point," he said. "Nothing really changes for me, just keep working and getting better."


O'Brien: Ryan Fitzpatrick back as starting QB for Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Bill O'Brien has made official what was expected - he has announced that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back as the starting quarterback for the Texans. Fitzpatrick replaces the injured Ryan Mallett.

The veteran started the first nine games of the season before losing his job. He completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,980 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
