Former WVU QB out six to ten weeks for Jets

August 11th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

New York Jets starting quarterback Geno Smith suffered a broken jaw after being sucker-punched in the locker room today by IK Enemkpali, coach Todd Bowles told the media. Bowles says Smith will miss 6-10 weeks and that Enemkpali has been released from the team.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Smith broke two bones in his jaw and will need surgery. Veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who the Jets signed in the off-season, will likely take over the starting position, and third stringer Bryce Petty will take over backup duty.

Regarding the incident, Bowles told the media: "He got cold-cocked, sucker punched whatever you want to call it, in the jaw."
