Geno Smith has been cleared to return to practice with the New York Jets today.

The rookie quarterback sustained an ankle injury during the AFC East side's 26-17 loss to the Detroit Lions on Friday.

Tests revealed that the 22-year-old had only suffered a mild sprain, allowing him to join his teammates on the practice field earlier today.

Smith completed six of his seven attempts in his first NFL game, making 47 passing yards.
