Jets suspend CB Dimitri Patterson 'indefinitely'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have "indefinitely" suspended cornerback Dimitri Patterson after he left the team for 48 hours without contacting the organization. General manager John Idzik said Monday that Patterson spoke to him and coach Rex Ryan on Sunday night. Idzik would not discuss the reason for the absence. Idzik adds that the suspension will be "brief," but the 31-year-old veteran will face further discipline once the team has gathered all the facts. Patterson wasn't on the practice field Monday. Patterson was with the team last Thursday night at a walkthrough practice at Hofstra University. Idzik said he was also at meetings, a walkthrough and the pregame meal Friday, but didn't show for the game at MetLife Stadium that night. ___ AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
