New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith was involved in a fight with a teammate — IK Enemkpali on Tuesday morning, resulting in a jaw injury that will keep him out for 6-10 weeks. Enemkpali has been released from the team.

The fight allegedly occurred in the lockerroom, and according to some witnesses, Smith was “sucker punched” by the outside linebacker, leaving quarterback with a broken jaw that will require surgery.

Smith took to Instagram after the incident:

“It was nothing to do with football. … It was very childish,” coach Todd Bowles said. “He got cold-cocked … sucker punched, whatever you want to call it, in the jaw. He’s got a broken jaw, a fractured jaw.”

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

Enemkpali isn’t a stranger to punching people. At 19, he punched an off-duty cop during a bar fight when he was a Louisiana Tech. According to court records, he was arrested and charged with battery on a police officer and disturbing the peace/drunk. The charges were later reduced and he served no jail time.

With Smith out, Ryan Fitzpatrick will start the season as the Jets quarterback.
