Coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that the quarterback -- who practiced fully Wednesday -- "could be" active against the Eagles on Sunday, but in such a scenario, Smith would re-enter the mix in a backup capacity, with Bowles confirming Tuesday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the 2-0 Jets' starting QB.
He was a limited participant in practice, and it is not a surprise that he won't play Monday, as it was reported earlier in the week that he would miss "about the next three games." Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start again in his place.
That said, the quarterback's timetable for a return hasn't changed and Smith still expected to miss "about the next three games," according to the report.
Enemkpali is appealing the suspension, which could be as many as six games. Smith is not facing a suspension for his role in the incident.
While Smith will miss the start of the season due to the injury, he has returned to practice. Enemkpali did not make the Bills' 53-man roster, but he was signed to the practice squad earlier this week.
Smith suffered a broken jaw on Aug. 11 after being punched by a former teammate and underwent surgery two days later. It's unlikely that he will be available for New York's season opener on Sunday.
