Geno Smith surfaces for shirtless throwing session
When it comes to topless driveway shows of athletic prowess, it will be tough for anyone to beat Terrell Owens’s 2005 workout at his New Jersey home at the height of his dispute with the Eagles.
Jets quarterback Geno Smith gave it his best shot on Saturday, though. Smith had surgery on his broken jaw on Thursday, but he was feeling well enough to doff his shirt and throw on some eye black over his swollen cheeks for a game of catch with a friend outside of his apartment building in Jersey.
Smith wasn’t in the mood to answer questions about the details of what led IK Enemkpali to break his jaw with a punch on Tuesday when questioned by a reporter from the New York Post, but Smith was willing to answer a query about how he was feeling a couple of days after surgery.
“I feel great,” Smith said. “You see me throwing, right?”
Smith is expected to miss 6-10 weeks while his jaw recovers and told Jets fans that they should “get ready for me to come back.” If Ryan Fitzpatrick does well in his run as the starter, those fans might have plenty of time and very little motivation to engage in those preparations.
