This one could be the biggest training camp bust-up yet.
The New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith was punched in the face by his teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali at practice this week.
Smith suffered a broken jaw in two places which will require surgery and will sideline him 6-10 weeks of playing.
“Word is Geno Smith put his finger in the face of IK Enemkpali’s during and argument that wasn’t getting diffused,”
NFL’s Ian Rapoport reports.
“Then came the punch.”
Jet's Coach, Todd Bowles says,
"It was something very childish,"
"and he got cold-cocked, sucker-punched — whatever you want to call it — in the jaw."
"The team knows this is something we don't tolerate, something we can't stand,"
"You don't walk up to another man and punch him in the face."So what REALLY happened in that locker room?
I.K. Enemkpali was immediately removed from his team after punched Smith and just a day later taken in by the Jets former coach and current Bills coach Rex Ryan.
Throughout all of the commotion, Geno Smith still appears to be in a positive place. He responded via instagram simply saying,
"I'll Be Back."
