Geno Smith punched in the locker room, breaks his jaw

Geno Smith earlier today was punched by linebacker Ik Enemkpali in the locker room. Geno ended up breaking his jaw and is said to likely miss 6 to 10 weeks because of this. It was said to be a sucker punch by Enemkpali, who shortly after was released by the team. The reason for this punch is not known yet, but Coach Bowles said it was over something very childish. The Jets play the Dolphins in week 4 of the regular season on October 4th. That is roughly 8 and 1/2 weeks from now, so it will be interesting to see if Geno will be able to return by then. The Jets play the Browns, Colts, and Eagles before the Dolphins and have a bye week right afterwards. Just when you thought the Jets could get it all together, this happens.
