Without mentioning New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith – the player he sucker punched – by name, linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali said he’s sorry, and never meant to hurt anyone. As for joining his new team, the Buffalo Bills, on Thursday in Pittsford, New York, Enemkpali said he’s grateful for a second chance a day after being claimed off waivers. In making his first public comments two days after punching and breaking Smith’s jaw, Enemkpali spoke for just 45 seconds and declined to take any questions. “I want to apologize to the Jets organization, the fans, my teammates and the coaches. I apologize for what happened,” Enemkpali said. – AP
