FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets' starting quarterback Geno Smith was injured after he was punched in the jaw by a teammate in the locker room Tuesday morning, according to several media reports.

Rich Cimini, who covers the team for ESPN, reported that Jets head coach Todd Bowles made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.
Ikemefuna Enemkpali, an outside linebacker for the Jets, reportedly threw the punch and has been released from the team.
"Geno, to use Todd Bowles' words exactly, was cold-cocked ... sucker punched, whatever you want to call it, in the jaw. He's got a broken jaw, a fractured jaw," Bowles told reporters, calling the incident "very childish" and something "sixth-graders could have talked about."
After the news broke, many people took to social media to proclaim that such an incident would have never happened at Cortland.
The Jets' summer training camp had been taking place at SUNY Cortland for roughly the past five years until the team decided in March to move its summer camp to its facility in Florham Park, New Jersey.

Can I please be that guy to ask: if #Jets were in #Cortland for training camp, would this still have happened? #A&WSavesAll
