Geno Smith Out 6 -10 Weeks with Broken Jaw

New York Jets starting QB will miss at least 6 weeks, possibly 10 after receiving a broken jaw....Smith was punched by teammate, Outside Linebacker, Ikemefuna Enemkpali during a locker room altercation...

Coach Todd Bowles said Enemkpali was released immediately...Bowles did not say what exactly the altercation was about, but described it as "very childish," and said it had nothing to do with football, and something "sixth-graders could have talked about"...

Bowles continued, “It’s something we don’t tolerate; it’s something we can’t stand. And you don’t walk up to another man and punch him in the face.”

With Smith out, Ryan Fitzpatrick (32) takes over as the starter...But this may also open the door for rookie QB, Bryce Petty (Baylor) to have a better shot at snagging the starting job.
