FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will be sidelined at least 6-10 weeks after being punched in the jaw by teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali.

Coach Todd Bowles made the announcement before training camp practice Tuesday.

Enemkpali, an outside linebacker in his second season, has been released by the Jets, according to Bowles.

Bowles says Smith and Enemkpali got into an “altercation” in the Jets’ locker room Tuesday morning in which Smith was “sucker-punched.” The coach adds that it had “nothing to do with football” and it was something “very childish,” without going into details.

Smith, entering his third season, required surgery to repair the jaw. Bowles says the Jets could add another quarterback, but it appears Ryan Fitzpatrick will assume the starting job.
