NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson did not show up for the team’s game against the Giants on Friday night and has had no direct communication with anyone in the organization since.

General manager John Idzik announced Sunday during a conference call that he learned through Patterson’s agent on Saturday that the player was OK physically and it is not believed to be a legal issue. But neither Idzik nor coach Rex Ryan have had messages left for Patterson returned by him directly.

Patterson, 31, signed as a free agent in April, was last with the team Thursday night at a walkthrough practice at Hofstra University. He didn’t show for the game the following night. Patterson has been dealing with leg ailments all summer but was expected to play.

Patterson has bounced around the NFL since being signed as an undrafted rookie by Washington in 2005. He has played for Kansas City, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Miami.
