The SportsXchange

Kenrick Ellis will not be penalized by the NFL for his role in a 2010 fight that led to a 45-day split sentence after he was convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery.

Ellis, who served part of the jail term but has 22 days to complete beginning March 1, 2013.

Ellis was visited by coach Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson in his 23-day lock up before the start of training camp. He was initially charged with felony assault and battery after a fight in 2010 on the Hampton University campus.

Ellis, a third-round pick in 2011, is the Jets' backup nose tackle behind eight-year veteran Sione Pouha.
