NEW York Jets quar­ter­back Geno Smith will miss six to 10 weeks with a bro­ken jaw af­ter be­ing “sucker punched” in the team locker room.

Smith was struck by re­serve line­backer I.K. Enemk­pali, who was sub­se­quently re­leased by the Jets, who have lost their start­ing sig­nal caller for at least the first cou­ple of games of the up­com­ing NFL sea­son and maybe longer.

Jets coach Todd Bowles called the cause of the al­ter­ca­tion “a very child­ish mat­ter” and said it was “some­thing two sixth-graders could have talked about”.

Re­serve quar­ter­back Ryan Fitz­patrick moves into the start­ing role.
