MANHATTAN — The Jets are putting strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi on indefinite leave after saying he instructed non-uniformed players to form a human wall on the sideline during their loss to the Dolphins, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

Alosi had been suspended for the remainder of the year after he allegedly stuck out his knee and tripped Dolphin’s Nolan Carroll during the incident, which occurred during Sunday’s game at New Meadowlands Stadium, the paper reported. But further investigation revealed that he had also told players on the sideline to form a wall.

Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum reportedly said he was not ruling out firing Alosi.

"All options are on the table," Tannenbaum said, according to the Post.

The GM went on to say the team would not suspend other players or coaches involved in the incident.

He said there would also be a separate, independent investigation.

"The league is going to look into this as well," Tannenbaum was reported as saying in the Daily News. "Once we get all the information, we'll make a final determination."
