FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Kenrick Ellis is thrilled with everything he has accomplished this offseason on the field, impressing his Jets coaches with marked improvement.

All of that will be put on hold starting Friday, when the second-year defensive tackle is expected to report to a Virginia prison. He will start serving a likely 45-day jail sentence after pleading guilty last month to assault and battery stemming from a 2010 fight while attending college at Hampton University.

Ellis is expected to miss only a few days of training camp next month while finishing his sentence.

Coach Rex Ryan says he has spoken to Ellis about the situation, and believes the third-round pick in 2011 will come back and make a big impact on the Jets' defense.
