News: The Jets suspended Patterson for the remainder of the preseason, NFL.com's Chris Wesseling reports. Impact: The team imposed the suspension after Patterson failed to show up for the team's preseason game last Friday due to his unhappiness with his place on the Jets' depth chart. His suspension will be lifted Sept. 1, but there's still a chance the Jets could cut him if they don't believe he's committed to the team.(RotoWire, )

News: Patterson's unhappiness with the Jets' current pecking order at cornerback is thought to be a reason behind him not showing up for Friday's preseason game, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Patterson went missing without communication from the Jets' organization for 48 hours over the weekend, including their third preseason game Friday. That unexcused behavior caused the Jets to suspend him indefinitely Monday. Despite ankle, calf, and quad injuries limiting Patterson throughout the preseason thus far, the Jets believe their newly-signed cornerback is disappointed with his positioning on the team's depth chart. If that feeling is true, he certainly took an unconventional route to express such a sentiment. Nonetheless, the Jets could use Patterson's help at cornerback, since Dee Milliner (ankle), Antonio Allen (concussion), and Dexter McDougle (knee) are all presently sidelined.(RotoWire, )

News: Patterson will be suspended indefinitely by the Jets, while the team gathers more information regarding his unexcused absence over the weekend. Impact: Patterson went missing for a 48-hour period over the weekend, failing to contact the Jets or show up for Saturday's preseason game. As the team aims to find out what led to his unusual behavior, the cornerback will be suspended until further notice. The journeyman battled multiple lower body injuries earlier in training camp, but general manager John Idzik said Patterson is now fine physically. While more news regarding Patterson's curious time away should surface in the coming days, his absence leaves an already depleted Jets' secondary even thinner for the time being.(RotoWire, )

But neither Idzik nor coach Rex Ryan have had messages left for Patterson returned by him directly.(STATS, 2:59pm)

News: Patterson (leg) was limited in practice Tuesday, but could play in the third preseason game, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports. Impact: Patterson was expected to be ready for the season opener, and the most recent news points towards the possibility of an even earlier return. He is dealing with multiple injuries to his ankle, calf, and quad, leaving the team's two starting cornerbacks (Patterson and Dee Millner) sidelined.(RotoWire, )

News: Patterson (leg) is expected by coach Rex Ryan to be ready for the Jets' season opener on Sept. 7 versus the Raiders, NJ.com reports. Impact: Patterson, who has played just 15 games over the past three seasons, is dealing with calf, ankle, and quadriceps ailments at the moment. In fact, the cornerback hasn't been a full participant since the Jets' preseason opener on Aug. 7. While he did go through individual drills during Monday's practice, it's unclear if Patterson will play in New York's remaining two preseason games. Despite his time off, he's still expected to be ready for Week 1, when he could help boost the Jets' current injury-riddled secondary.(RotoWire, )
