Ellis to be suspended

Cortland - Jets DE Shaun Ellis is about to be suspended for the first game of the season. The announcement was made by Dave Hutchinson in the Newark Star-Ledger.

"Veteran defensive end Shaun Ellis is expected to be suspended for the opener against the Houston Texans for his arrest on Nov. 29 in Morris County for possession of marijuana, according to two league officials with knowledge of the situation," wrote Hutchinson.

If this does come to pass the Jets will be without two defensive stalwarts for their opener in Houston - Calvin Pace and Ellis. Pace will miss the first four games due to a substance suspension.
