Rex Ryan is head coach of the Buffalo Bills. And Rex Ryan is a bad, bad man.
Rex Ryan says IK Enemkpali, the man who broke Geno Smith's jaw, will be a co-captain Thursday night when the Bills play the Jets.

In August, Enemkpali, then with the Jets, got in a locker-room altercation with starting quarterback Geno Smith over $600. Enemkpali broke Smith's jaw, and he was released shortly after.
Ryan, head coach of the Jets from 2009-2014 who had Enemkpali as a rookie last season, signed the defensive end one day after the Jets waived him.
Enemkpali, who served a four-game suspension to start the season, and has just two tackles in a reserve role this season, will be a Bills captain for their primetime game Thursday against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
Rex Ryan, the trolliest of the trolls, strikes again.
Rex Ryan on if IK Enemkpali will be a captain: "Yeah. I'll get ripped, whatever. I do this all the time."

However, Jets fans could cheer Enemkpali. After all, the team is in playoff position at 5-3, partly thanks to the play of Smith's replacement and former Bill, Ryan Fitzpatrick.
