Source: Jets won't be suspended

New York Jets players involved in Thursday night's fracas with the New England Patriots, will be fined, but not suspended, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Late in that game, after Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib's second interception, Jets center Nick Mangold was called for a questionable late hit when Talib finally stepped out of bounds.

Left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson threw a punch in the ensuing scuffle that led to his ejection, and right guard Willie Colon was ejected for pushing an official.

Asked whether he pushed a referee, Colon last Thursday said he wasn't sure. Unnecessarily fighting (active involvement) carries a fine of $5,250 for a first offense under league rules.

If the league chooses to fine the Jets, potentially three of the five starters on the offensive line could lose money. The NFL usually notifies players of any discipline on the Thursday following a game.
