A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith will not attend Mark Sanchez's camp for teammates in Southern California this week.
Sanchez has organized the informal workouts and team-bonding camps, dubbed "Jets West," each of the last few summers. It's not certain if Sanchez officially invited Smith, the team's second-round pick competing with Sanchez for the starting job, but Smith will not participate in the workouts that started Thursday, the person told the AP.
The person requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak for Sanchez or Smith.
The Daily News reports that Smith, who had said during mini camp in June that he would likely attend if invited by Sanchez, is working out on his own in Florida.
