Jets S Eric Smith sidelined with a concussion

Safety Eric Smith will miss the New York Jets’ game at

Pittsburgh on Sunday while recovering from a concussion.

Smith, who has had at least two previous concussions, was hurt

in the Jets’ 10-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins last Sunday. Coach Rex

Ryan says Wednesday that he doesn’t ”believe” Smith will play

against the Steelers (10-3), leaving the Jets (9-4) short-handed

again at safety.

Ryan says cornerback Dwight Lowery will move to safety full

time, and the Jets are hoping to have James Ihedigbo (right

ankle/knee) back after missing a game.

Right tackle Damien Woody also has undergone arthroscopic

surgery on his injured right knee, and ”he’s doing fine,” Ryan

said. Woody could miss the rest of the regular season.
