Kenrick Ellis showed a lot of promise during minicamp. Now he is off to serve his prison sentence.

After entering a plea agreement last month, Ellis is scheduled to serve his agreed upon prison sentence today, stemming from a misdemeanor assualt and battery case from 2010. The sentence is scheduled to end on July 26th, 3 days after the Jets report to training camp in Cortland, NY.

Kenrick has been reluctant to talk about the case after entering the plea agreement, advising that he was happy the case was settled, and didn’t want to think about it. Here is what he had to say about being able to maintain his conditioning while in prison.

“Conditioning is a major part of playing in the NFL. I’ll just try to get in better shape,” Ellis said, adding, “I’m just going to do my best to show up here and contribute to the team.”
