Turns out breaking New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw, wasn’t the only jaw dropping moment in the life of IK Enemkpali. In college, the now Buffalo Bills, linebacker was catfished.

In fact, Enemkpali missed his college team's 2011 season opener after injuring his hand punching a man he thought was a woman that he had arranged to have sex with.

 ESPN detailed the bizarre story, saying Enemkpali need surgery on his hand and couldn't play for Louisiana Tech following an incident involving a Facebook friend that went by the name "Missy Lee."

“Missy Lee,” offered to perform oral sex on Enemkpali if he would come over her house. When Enemkpali showed up he saw a figure "covered head-to-toe in a blanket" that refused to turn the lights on.  Enemkpali wisely felt uneasy about the situation and left.

However Enemkpali returned to the house after “Missy Lee” called him and convinced him to come back. When he returned he claims, the person still refused to remove the blanket or turn the lights on.  When a cell phone rang, the light revealed the person in the blanket had facial hair.

Enemkpali said at that moment another person entered the room and he felt like he was being set up. Fearing for his safety, he punched the person in the blanket. Enemkpali stated that after he struck the person, their voice changed from female to male.

Enemkpali says he later received threatening messages demanding money, but Enemkpali reported the incident to police.  No charges ended up being filed on either side

Police identified “Missy Lee,” as 34-year-old Ketryn Anderson. He admitted to police about reaching out to Enemkpali. He denied hiding under a blanket, but admits he did refuse to turn the lights on.

Enemkpali was selected by the Jets in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft. He was released on August 11th, after he broke quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw in an incident over $600. Former Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan and his new team, the Buffalo Bills, signed Enemkpali the next day.

As a lifelong suffering Jets fan, finding out IK Enemkpali was once catfished doesn't surprise me at all. Nor does it upset me!
