FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Dimitri Patterson ended his puzzling absence after 48 hours, but his future with the New York Jets is now uncertain.

The Jets “indefinitely” suspended the veteran cornerback Monday after he left the team Friday without contacting the organization. General manager John Idzik said Patterson spoke to him and coach Rex Ryan on Sunday night, but neither Idzik nor Ryan would discuss the reason for the absence.

“Obviously, Dimitri felt he acted appropriately, but until we discussed it last night, you don’t understand,” Idzik said. “And, to be honest, we’re still trying to understand all that went behind it. So, I would rather not characterize it.”

Idzik added that the “indefinite” suspension will be “brief,” but the 31-year-old Patterson will face more discipline once the team has gathered all the facts. Patterson wasn’t on the practice field Monday.
