FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets have suspended cornerback Dimitri Patterson for the rest of the preseason after he left the team last week for 48 hours without speaking to anyone in the organization.

The team announced Tuesday night that additional terms of discipline would not be disclosed. However, Patterson is likely facing a fine.

Patterson had been suspended indefinitely on Monday so the team could gather facts before determining how he would be further disciplined. The team ruled that Patterson will be suspended for the rest of this week, including the preseason finale at Philadelphia on Thursday night, and is eligible to return next Monday.
