New York Jets Quarterback Punched By a Teammate, Will Miss 6-8 Weeks
New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will be out six to ten weeks after being punched in the jaw by teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali.
As for what caused the linebacker to punch the 24-year-old QB, coach Todd Bowles said in a press conference, “It’s something very childish that sixth-graders could have talked about … If they want to tell you what happened they’ll tell you what happened. I told them I wouldn’t say anything.”
Geno had been competing for the starting job with veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. It is being reported that Geno is currently in surgery after the accident. Ikemefuna has been released from the team in light of the fight.
We wish Geno a speedy recovery!
