Dimitri Patterson suspended indefinitely after going AWOL
Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson has been suspended by the team, after he went AWOL and failed to turn up for their game against the Giants on Friday. General manager John Idzik commented on the situation: "I think what weâ€™re going to do now is he will be suspended indefinitely. That will give us a little time to gather more information around what led to his behavior. I think that way, we feel like weâ€™ll make a very well-informed decision as to what discipline will be forthcoming. And there will be discipline involved."
Things aren't looking good for Patterson. Although he was a projected starter for New York, he was hardly spectacular in training camp. This could affect his place on the team, and eliminate what little fantasy value he had to begin with. Patterson is someone you'll want to avoid in IDP leagues, even if he does end up starting Week 1.
