Just when you thought the NY Jets had a chance to contend for a playoff spot this year, this happened. The NFL gods decided to have fun with the New York Jets once again. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported earlier today (Aug. 11) that Geno Smith got sucker punched in the locker room by a teammate. Wait, it gets worse, it’s being reported that Geno broke his jaw and is out 6-10 weeks. Ouch.
Breaking news: #Jets QB Geno Smith got sucker punched in the locker room. Broken jaw. Out 6-10 weeks.
The Jets developed a formidable squad this off-season after they acquired the likes of Brandon Marshall and brought back Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.
