Matt Simms will get the start on Thursday for the Jets, according to Costello's source. The McElroy injury also led to the signing of Graham Harrell.
Simms certainly appears to be the flavor of the month, but the Jets have more tape on McElroy so this will let them evaluate another player. Simms' arm has never been his problem, it's been the decision-making, so the Jets will give him a shot. I'll be very interested in how he plays, but will temper my enthusiasm.
