He added, “I’m very grateful, thankful and happy to be a Bill”. That seems to have been the case here, and Smith will now have plenty of time on the sidelines to think about what he could’ve done differently to have avoided the altercation.
“That’ll get a man hit every time, especially one that hasn’t earned respect”, a source said. Ryan said the same was true in Buffalo. “I never said we were going to be sharp right off the bat”. “So we got to give him some experience”. The second-year linebacker is thankful for another opportunity with the Buffalo Bills, who claimed him after the Jets’ release.
Enemkpali is trying to make the Bills roster on a defense that is already loaded with big names such as Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes.
An NFL spokesman said Wednesday that the league is reviewing the situation.
Smith’s jaw requires surgery and he’ll be out 6 to 10 weeks. But we have to live with the results..
If the recovery rumors are true, Geno Smith could be back in the lineup when the New York Jets open September 13 against the Cleveland Browns. Although he appeared in just six games with the Jets last season, Enemkpali did have a pair of sacks that were called back because of penalties in the secondary. Receiver Percy Harvin had several run-ins with teammates in Seattle and was recently dubbed by Sports Illustrated as the NFL’s “most hated player in the locker room”.
This isnt a UFC match, Jets guard Willie Colon said.
Enemkpali, from Pflugerville, Texas, has been in previous trouble for fighting.
According to ESPN, Enemkpali was involved in a bar fight after his redshirt freshman year at Louisiana Tech in which he struck an off-duty officer. “A lot of us were around IK, and he was a good teammate”.
Clark knows from his own dealings with Enemkpali that the hulking 24-year-old doesn’t mess around when it comes to his money. Hes always played his tail off. So details at this point are here and there.
According to another witness, an arrogant-acting Smith wasn’t going to pay up and dared Enemkpali to do something about his defiance. Its a loss..
Enemkpali issued a statement to the Associated Press through representative Dennis Waszak, which read, “I apologize to the Jets organization, coaches, teammates and fans”.
Linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali said it was never his intention to hurt anyone and he’s grateful to get a second chance at his career with the Buffalo Bills. “I apologize for what happen – it should have never happen”.
