The New York Jets suspended cornerback Dimitri Patterson for the remainder of the preseason.
He can come back as soon as Sept. 1.
Patterson was absent without leave for two days and missed a game against the New York Giants.
Patterson has had injuries, including quadriceps, calf and foot problems.
He wasn't slated to start against the Giants.
"No, we weren't going to put him with the starters," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "He hadn't really worked to that extent. But that doesn't mean we wouldn't have put him in there with the ones at some point."
