The Enemkpali "sucker punch" -- to borrow a description by Jets coach Todd Bowles -- led to surgery for Smith, who fractured his jaw in two places. The initial prognosis is that Smith could miss 6-to-10 weeks. It's unclear at this time if that timetable has changed.
Bowles said after practice that Smith has been cleared for light jogging and throwing, adding, "It was good to see his face."
Here are a few other injuries we were watching Monday:
- Staying at Jets camp, linebackers Lorenzo Mauldin and Calvin Pace both sat out Monday's practice with injuries. Mauldin is rehabbing a sprained knee and will not play in this week's preseason game against the Giants, Bowles confirmed. He also announced that Pace strained his groin and there is no timetable for his return.
On the topic of Arian Foster's recovery, O'Brien had little to add: "I don't have any update. He's in here rehabbing."
- Titans cornerback Jason McCourty underwent successful surgery to fix a tear in his groin Monday, coach Ken Whisenhunt announced. Whisenhunt added that, while he is not sure how long the rehabbing process will take, he wouldn't rule out having McCourty back for Tennessee's Week 1 opener against the Buccaneers.
- Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans left Monday night's game against the Bengals with a hamstring injury. Evans will not return for the remainder of the game. NFL Media's Rand Getlin reports that the injury is not believed to be serious and was held out due to precautionary measures, per multiple sources close to the situation. Cornerback Leonard Johnson left the game with a left ankle injury, per the team's website.
