Rex Ryan to make IK Enemkpali a captain against Jets
Rex Ryan has made it a running joke this season to make opponents feel awkward by naming certain players captains, and he is already planning to outdo himself when he makes his first trip to New York to face his former team.
During his Monday press conference, Ryan revealed that he will make linebacker I.K. Enemkpali a co-captain against the Jets this weekend.
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.

Rex Ryan asked if he can make himself a captain for the Jets game. “Yeah, we’re checking on that,” he jokes.

As many of you know, Enemkpali is the player who broke Geno Smith’s jaw during a locker room altercation before the season. He was promptly released by the Jets, and Ryan was quick to sign him.
You may have also noticed that Rex loves trolling opponents. On Sunday, he made Richie Incognito and several other former Miami Dolphins players co-captains. Rex pulled a similar stunt when he sent this crew out for the coin toss against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.
Apparently nothing is off-limits for Rex. Either that, or he must agree with this take on why Smith got punched.
