FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -New York Jets quarterback Kellen Clemens left Sunday's game against the New England Patriots with a rib injury after he was slammed into the turf by defensive lineman Richard Seymour in the first quarter.
Eugene Wilson intercepted Clemens' pass at the Jets' 5 yard-line and ran it in for a touchdown. When the New York offense came on the field after the kickoff, Brad Smith was at quarterback. Smith is a wide receiver who sometimes lines up at quarterback, his college position.
Chad Pennington replaced him for one play, then Smith came back in and threw an incompletion on fourth-and-2 from the Patriots 17. Pennington took over at the start of the next Jets possession, early in the second quarter.
The team announced that Clemens had a rib injury and would probably return to the game.
Pennington started the season as the No. 1 quarterback, but he was benched in favor of Clemens after the Jets won just one of their first eight games.
