New York Jets
The Jets QB had plates and screws inserted into his jaw, which was broken when he was punched by former teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali in the locker room Tuesday.
The Jets are like Alex Rodriguez and the Jelly of the Month Club — a gift that keeps on giving.
Rex Ryan won’t excuse IK Enemkpali for a sucker punch that broke Geno Smith’s jaw in the Jets’ locker room. But he’s giving the linebacker a chance, adding more intrigue to the rivalry between AFC East foes.
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s bushy beard is already in midseason form. The Jets hope his command of the offense gets there, too. Quickly.
Buffalo’s waiver claim reunites Enemkpali with coach Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. NFL.com first reported Buffalo’s move.
Ryan Fitzpatrick gives the Jets a fighting chance at quarterback. He has the mobility to get away from the pass rush, is an accurate short- and medium-range passer and he can also throw on the move.
Enemkpali, who had three tackles in six games last season, could also face legal charges if Smith pursues them.
The Geno Smith broken jaw incident speaks to the cloud, the curse, the hex, the hoax, that covers the New York Jets.
Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be a star, but he’s a more accomplished quarterback than Geno Smith. And as far as the Jets are concerned, that should be good enough for the time being.
“Sometimes people want people to get into confrontations,” Scott said. But if it was somebody that people respected, they would have defused it immediately.”
Todd Bowles laid down the law Monday. But by Tuesday morning, the discipline he has tried to instill on the Jets’ practice field outside vaporized inside the locker room.
Geno Smith’s hopes for a breakout season with the New York Jets took a major blow — to the jaw.
This Jets training camp has been inundated with disappointing news. The Geno Smith incident is NOT one of them.
Miles has been making plays throughout camp, impressing his coaches and making a real case to stick when the regular season begins.
The Jets placed safety Antonio Allen on the season-ending injured reserve list Monday and activated defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson from the active/physically unable to perform list.
