New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi has been given additional punishment by the New York Jets for apparently ordering a human wall before he tripped a Miami Dolphins player Sunday.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum announced the punishment after Alosi was suspended for the rest of the season and fined $25,000 on Monday.

“Over the last day as we continued our investigation we discovered some new information,” Tannenbaum said. "The players at the Miami game were instructed by Sal to stand where they were forcing the gunner in the game to run around them. Based on that new information we’ve suspended Sal indefinitely, pending further review.

Tannenbaum said that as soon as the team learned the new information, the Jets contacted NFL vice president of football operations Ray Anderson.

“They support this initial decision that we presented to them,” Tannenbaum said. “The league is going to look into this as well, as well they should. Once we get all the information we’ll make a final determination.”

Tannenbaum was clear in what happened.

“Specifically when Miami was punting they were asked to stand there by him,” he said.

Tannenbaum said Alosi acted alone, that he wasn’t told by anyone in the organization to instruct players to stand in a line.
