CORTLAND, N.Y. -- New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested last week in New Jersey for outstanding traffic warrants after being stopped by police. McKnight was pulled over in Hanover Township last Tuesday morning, an off day for players from camp at SUNY Cortland, for changing lanes without signalling, according to Police Chief Steve Gallagher. After stopping McKnight, police discovered the two outstanding warrants: one for failure to produce an insurance card in Summit, N.J., while the other was for failure to observe a traffic signal in Springfield. McKnight was then arrested and later posted $320 bail -- the amount of the warrants -- and released with summons for unsafe lane change and having an uninsured vehicle. The Jets declined comment on the arrest, first reported by The New York Post. McKnight has been back with the Jets since the incident, but hasnt practiced since last Friday after experiencing concussion-like symptoms following a hit during a play. He has also been dealing with cramping issues throughout camp. McKnight was the teams fourth-round draft pick out of Southern California in 2010, and has been the Jets primary kick returner the last two seasons. He has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, including a franchise-record 107-yarder in 2011 against Baltimore that also stands as the teams longest play. McKnight, 25, is the latest Jets running back to deal with legal issues. Mike Goodson was arrested on drug and weapons possession charges in May along with a friend in New Jersey. The case was sent to a grand jury in June, and Goodson has pleaded not guilty. Goodson is on the reserve-did not report list, and it is uncertain when or if he will rejoin the team. The Jets have said they are aware of where Goodson is, and why, and general manager John Idzik has said that the team is approaching the situation "day by day." Goodsons absence from camp is not believed to be related to his legal situation.

Some trustees, former players and coaches and current faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit, which the NCAA said was flawed and contained "various significant legal deficiencies." College sports governing body said in the filing in Centre County court late Tuesday that the civil suit must be dismissed in part because the university itself isnt part of the suit. The sanctions handed down in July 2012 were agreed to by the NCAA and the university president. The NCAA also firmly denied a claim that it had conspired with former FBI director Louis Freehs team in formulating the sanctions. Freeh led the schools internal investigation into the scandal, and the Paterno family and three former school officials have vehemently denied Freehs scathing allegations of a coverup. "Their suit complains primarily about the conclusions of the Freeh Report, conducted at the behest of the Penn State Board, and the universitys acceptance of its findings," NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement outlining the organizations arguments. "The NCAA did not commission the Freeh Report nor had any role in it. It was the NCAAs first response to the case since the lawsuit was filed in late May. The NCAA also asked for related complaints against NCAA president Mark Emmert and Oregon State president Ed Ray to be dismissed for lack of merit. Ray was chair of the NCAA executive committee when the penalties were announced. "Universities must be free to manage their own affairs, including their membership in the NCAA, without interference by disappointed or disgruntled individuals," Remy said. "While the plaintiffs may be unhappy with the conclusions and universitys acceptance of the Freeh Report, the plaintiffs in this case were not sanctioned by the NCAA and have no legal basis to sue." Paul Kelly, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs other than the Paterno family, said Tuesday he had not a chance yet to review the NCAAs lengthy response. The landmark sancttions were announced a year ago Tuesday, on July 23, 2012.dddddddddddd They included a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine. The penalties, and the NCAAs handling of the Penn State case, remain the subject of scrutiny among some alumni, area residents and Pennsylvania politicians, as well as in the courts. Earlier Tuesday, three trustees who took seats earlier this month offered support for the five board colleagues involved in the litigation. The suit said that the NCAA bypassed the organizations own rules in levying penalties against the football program with uncharacteristic speed. The lawsuit also attacks Freehs handling of the internal investigation, along with how and why the NCAA used Freehs report as a basis for sanctions. "We firmly believe that truth and justice should never fear an open hearing and review -- whether in the courts or before the Board of Trustees," trustees Ted Brown, Barbara Doran and William Oldsey said in their joint statement. The alumni-elected trustees elected this spring were endorsed by an alumni watchdog group that has been critical of the decisions of board leaders after the scandal began with Sanduskys arrest in November 2011, including Paternos firing. The NCAA filing came on the same day that Penn State issued a statement on bowl revenue. The schools nearly $2.3 million share of bowl revenue has been divided among the Big Tens 12 member schools, including Penn State, to distribute for causes focused on child protection or advocacy. The school said the individual share for each school amounted to more than $188,000. The Nittany Lions finished the 2012 season bowl-eligible at 8-4, but were banned from the post-season as part of NCAA sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The $2.3 million represents Penn States share of conference bowl revenue had the school been allowed to play in the post-season. Penn State said its portion of the carved-up bowl share would be funneled through the Centre County United Way with instructions to split the money between the Stewards of Children program and the Childrens Advocacy Center. Coach Bill OBrien and three players are scheduled to take part in Big Ten media days beginning Wednesday in Chicago. ' ' '
