Jets' Kenrick Ellis to serve 45 days in jail

The Associated Press reports New York Jets backup defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis was sentenced to 45 days in jail Monday after pleading guilty to assault and battery during an incident in 2010. Ellis will report on June 15, which is one day after the Jets conclude their mandatory minicamp.

Ellis was involved in a fight at Hampton University two years ago. The Associated Press also reports the alleged victim is suing Ellis for $3 million in damages.

The Jets drafted Ellis in the third round last year. He started two games as a rookie and recorded seven tackles.
