Draft Scout Geno Smith News
09/28/15 - QB Geno Smith was active for the first time this season Sunday, when he served as the backup to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Jets' 24-17 loss to the Eagles. Smith was inactive for the first two games as he recovered from a broken jaw sustained during a locker room fight with ex-teammate IK Enemkpali on Aug. 11. Head coach Todd Bowles said following a Week 2 win over Indianapolis that Fitzpatrick would remain the starter even when Smith was cleared to return, a stance he repeated after Fitzpatrick struggled in Sunday's loss.
09/23/15 - QB Geno Smith (broken jaw) returned to practice Wednesday. It was the first full practice for Smith since he got hurt during a locker room fight with ex-LB I.K. Enemkpali on Aug. 11. Head coach Todd Bowles said Smith could back up QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday. Bowles said Tuesday that Fitzpatrick will remain the Jets' starter even after Smith returns
09/11/15 - QB Geno Smith (broken jaw) was officially listed as out on Friday and is expected to miss the first four games of the season.
08/23/15 - QB Geno Smith (broken jaw) was not on the sideline for the Jets' 30-22 win over the Falcons on Friday. Head coach Todd Bowles has a policy that players who can't practice can't be on the sideline for games. Smith, who had his jaw broken in a locker-room fight with ex-Jets LB IK Enemkpali on Aug. 11, underwent surgery two days later. He could resume light workouts this week.
08/16/15 - QB Geno Smith said he "feels great" following jaw surgery after being punched by a teammate last week.
The New York Post caught Smith throwing to a friend on Saturday at his apartment complex near the Jets' training facility in Florham Park, N.J. -- only two days removed from surgery.
"I feel great," he told the newspaper. "You see me throwing, right?"
Smith had his jaw broken in two spots when he was on the wrong end of a punch in the locker room thrown by teammate IK Enemkpali last Tuesday. The Jets immediately released Enemkpali after the incident and he was claimed on waivers by the Buffalo Bills.
Doctors inserted plates and screws during Smith's surgery Thursday but did not wire his jaw shut.
The Jets previously said Smith is expected to be out six to 10 weeks.
"Get ready for me to come back," Smith, his cheeks swollen, told the Post.
Smith was at the team facility Sunday, and head coach Todd Bowles was asked after practice if he spoke to him. Bowles said, "I didn't. He came in when we were out on the field. I knew he was coming in to see the doctors but I knew we'd be at practice so I didn't get a chance to see him."
However, Bowles let it be known the club isn't pleased with throwing a football. Bowles said, "He shouldn't be doing it right now. We handled that internally. We had that discussion."
Asked if it was risky, the coach said, "Yeah, he just got surgery. You don't want him to get infected."
