New York Jets coach Rex Ryan doesn't expect the team to have a resolution to the situation regarding suspended cornerback Dimitri Patterson before the preseason finale Thursday at Philadelphia.

Ryan had no updates Tuesday on the status of Patterson, who was suspended by the team indefinitely Monday after returning to the Jets following a 48-hour unexcused absence.

Patterson was at meetings, a walkthrough and the pregame meal last Friday, but didn't show for the preseason game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium. He gave the Jets no warning he would leave the team, and didn't speak to anyone in the organization directly until he met with Ryan and general manager John Idzik on Sunday night.

Idzik said Monday the team was gathering facts before determining how Patterson will be disciplined.
