FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Geno Smith has not yet pressed charges and is likely not to, so says a source close to the New York Jets quarterback about last week’s altercation at the team’s facility.
A week ago, Smith was punched in the jaw by IK Enemkpali, the now former Jets linebacker who had a dispute with his quarterback over money. Smith will likely be out for the first month of the season and required jaw surgery, which he had late last week. A source tells Metro New York that Smith has not yet pressed charges against Enemkpali “and likely won’t.”
The Florham Park Police Department confirmed to Metro that no charges have been filed yet and the police were not called to Atlantic Health Jets Training Center following the fracas.
The source indicated to Metro that Smith is unlikely to pursue charges at this time and likely won’t. It is unclear if the reason for the Jets quarterback not filing on the incident has anything to do with his perceived role in the fight or rather his willingness to let the incident simmer down.
