New York Jets: No Suspensions Will Come From Thursday's Incident

Jason LaCanfora reports there will be no Jets suspended for the incident at the end of Thursday night's loss to the Patriots.

Just from the way things looked, any suspensions would have seemed like an overreach by the league. They could have potentially decimated the Jets' offensive line. Any suspensions would have probably been a borderline decision if one was charitable. If the league is going to take important players off the field for an important game, it had better be for infractions that clearly merit it. Fines seem to be the most appropriate sanctions to deal with this matter.

The NFL seems to be showing a rare display of restraint in a player discipline matter, and that is a good thing.
