Eyewitness says Geno Smith 'deserved' the punch

This Wednesday, Jets quarterback Geno Smith's jaw was broken by linebacker IK Enemkpali in practice.

Enemkpali was cut, though Rex Ryan claimed him.

Eyewitness accounts say Geno Smith was acting aggressively towards the linebacker before Enemkpali punched him in the face. Smith will be out for 6-10 weeks.

Yahoo Sports:
Geno Smith "was up in (Enemkpali's) face and pointed/touched his face," according to an anonymous source.
"Geno Smith deserved the punch" according to a witness.
"The team knows it's something we don't tolerate, something we can't stand. You don't walk up to a man and punch him in the face." - Coach Tedd Bowles
"I apologize to the Jets organization, coaches, teammates and fans, Geno and I let our frustration get the best of us, but I should have just walked away from the situation. I deeply regret and apologize for my actions. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I appreciate the opportunity I had with the Jets." - IK Emenkpali
ESPN analyst and former NFL safety Ryan Clark said, after hearing details from others, that quarterback Geno Smith was "smug" about paying Enemkpali back $600 over a plane ticket Enemkpali bought for him, leading up to when Enemkpali punched him.

Did Smith really deserve to have his jaw broken? But a more important question is why nobody is rushing to defend Smith?
