Enemkpali played in three games last season, not getting too much action, finishing with three tackles. You never know how players will respond to injuries, or what will happen to their roster spot while they are out. He’s said some things where you look at him like, ‘What are you talking about?’ But I think that’s all about his maturation period. “It was never my intention to hurt anybody”, The 24-year-old Enemkpali added. While the two have yet to officially release a statement regarding the physical altercation, the New York Jets management have made theirs: no explanation will ever hold water to this kind of behavior. Smith will likely require surgery and is projected to miss between six and 10 weeks.
Rex Ryan claimed Enemkpali for the Bills team the day after he was realesed from the Jets, for punching a teammate.
As for joining the Bills, the second-year player vowed to be an accountable teammate.
I guess just knowing the story I felt people should know he wasn’t sucker punched like an innocent by stander watching a fight.
With that, he was escorted away by members of the Bills’ public relations staff without answering questions, which is the same unsatisfactory way the Bills’ handled the return of offensive line coach Aaron Kromer.
Though he’s has not yet practiced with the Bills, Ryan is still considering making him active for Buffalo’s preseason opener against Carolina on Friday night.
Now Ryan Rex head coach of Buffalo Bills will gamble on Enemkpali to not pursue this behavior on further disputes.
“Not at all”, said Ryan, responding to the question on whether or not the former New York Jets linebacker should provide an explanation for his behavior in his previous NFL team, according to ESPN.
It was an unfortunate incident.
“We had IK last year”, Ryan said.
Whaley, however, cautioned that Enemkpali knows hes on a short leash.. Any incident involving workplace violence that occurs off the football field falls under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The Jets are still trying to figure out what they are going to do for a backup quarterback in the wake of Geno Smith’s broken jaw.
If that’s truly what went down, then Enemkpali will turn out to be a Jets’ hero.
But a once-promising offseason in which the Jets managed to bring back two of the game’s top cornerbacks, a No. 1 receiver and the draft’s most talented player has dipped into chaos. NFL broadcaster Adam Schein posted a note on his Twitter account reading: “Jets Football!!!!” You cant make this up!.
The headline on the cover of Wednesday’s New York Daily News was “Luck of the Jaw!”
One player got hurt, and another was cut.
This is a smart move by Enemkpali and by the Bills.
