Trial delayed for Jets Kenrick Ellis

The New York Jets knew he had legal troubles when they signed him.  Now, his Trial could interrupt the upcoming season.

Hampton nose tackle Kenrick Ellis, the Jets third round pick, is facing felony charges for malicious wounding.   Now, Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that his trial has been moved to November 28 after Ellis changed lawyers.

It is safe to assume that the Jets believed whatever Ellis was convicted of, if anything, would not prevent him from playing this season.  That assumption could be in jeopardy now.

Ellis was charged with felony malicious wounding stemming from an incident in which he allegedly broke the jaw and nose of a man on the Hampton University campus. According to sources, the alleged incident occurred while Ellis was defending his girlfriend at the time.

The Nov. 28 trial date is the day after the Jets host the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.
