Jets quarterback Geno Smith will be out six to 10 weeks because he'll need surgery for his broken jaw after getting punched in the face by teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali.

This revelation came after Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey was praising Smith's progress. Smith was booed mercilessly during a Jets scrimmage this past weekend because many fans and former Jets don't believe he's good enough:

Update: Former Jets QB Michael Vick has Tweeted:

And Geno has 'grammed:
