Punch Drunk Love – Jets’ Geno Smith Sidelined 6-10 Weeks From Locker Room Fight

What happens when locker room melees get out of control in Buffalo? Starting quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw gets broken, sidelining him for at least six weeks.

Following a locker room altercation with teammate (now former) IK Enemkpali this week, the starting quarterback for the Jets, Geno Smith, suffered a broken jaw and will be out of the mix for six to 10 weeks, per reports.

Tragically, the dispute was over $600, pretty much pocket change for most NFL quarterbacks. Per reports, Geno will miss as many as 10 weeks after suffering from two fractures in his jaw.

It all started when Geno accepted a $600 plane ticket from IK Enemkpali to appear at a football camp in in Pflugerville, Texas. But Smith ultimately never showed to the camp, namely because he was attending a friend’s funeral in Miami (a close friend was killed in a motorcycle accident that same week).

But, following his lack of attendance at the football camp, Enemkpali stuck it to Geno to pay him back the $600 that he spent on the ticket. When Enemkpali confronted Geno in the locker room this past Tuesday, things spiraled out of control, leading to Enemkpali sucker-punching Geno in the face and fracturing his jaw.

Now the Jets are going to have to figure out a way to move forwards without their starting quarterback for at least two to four weeks in the regular season (preseason starts this week).

Enemkpali, who was selected during the sixth-round in 2014, was cut by the team immediately following incident. And Jets coach Todd Bowles has left the ball in Geno’s court as to whether or not he wants to press criminal charges of assault against Enemkpali.

“It was nothing to do with football. … It was very childish,” Bowles told the press. “He got cold-cocked … sucker punched, whatever you want to call it, in the jaw. He’s got a broken jaw, a fractured jaw. The team knows it. It’s something we don’t tolerate, something we can’t stand. You don’t walk up to a man and punch him in the face. You can call him every name in the book and point in his face and do whatever you want, but when you punch a man in the face, that’s some serious stuff!”

The news from Enemkpali’s camp was somber the day after, with him releasing a statement to press that reads:

“I apologize to the Jets organization, coaches, teammates and fans,” Enemkpali said. “Geno and I let our frustration get the best of us, but I should have just walked away from the situation. I deeply regret and apologize for my actions. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I appreciate the opportunity I had with the Jets.”

To his credit, teammates said that Geno did not react to the punch and did not fight back. But multiple players did step in to break up the commotion and restrain Enemkpali.

With Geno out for a while, the Jets will look to veteran quarterback backup, Ryan Fitzpatrick, who Bowles said would be the interim starter for the team.

“My only goal is to heal quickly and get back to playing with my teammates so I can be the best QB possible for the NY Jets,” Smith said in a statement.

Geno’s stats show a career 57.5% completion percentage with 5,571 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 34 interceptions, and a QBR of just 71.5.

By comparison, Fitzpatrick has thrown for 19,273 yards with a 60.2% completion rate and 123 touchdowns to 101 interceptions, with a QBR of 79.5.

Turns out, Fitzpatrick may actually be a step up for the Jets after all.

  74. Hi, i believe that i saw you visited my blog so i got here to “return the prefer”.I’m attempting to in finding things to improve my site!I assume its good enough to use some of your ideas!!

  75. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
