This is horrible news to report on behalf of the New York Jets. Starting quarterback Geno Smith will reportedly by out six to 10 weeks for taking a ‘sucker punch’ by defensive end IK Enemkpali that in result broke the quarterback’s jaw.
Geno Smith has a broken jaw resulting from a fight with IK Enemkpali this morning, Todd Bowles told reporters. Enemkpali released.

The team has reportedly released Enemkpali. It would appear that the team will now have to rely upon veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick to call the signals while Smith heals.
