Charges were upgraded Wednesday against the man accused of attacking a Jets fan after Sunday's game.
Merle Lee, 35, is now being charged with aggravated assault. He was previously charged with simple assault.
Police say Lee punched James Mohr of Queens in the face after an argument ended with a group of men.
Mohr, 23, has been taken out of intensive care and is listed in fair condition.
Investigators say the dispute wasn't about the game.
"The preliminary investigation indicates that Lee acted alone when he was attacked, when he attacked Mr. Moore. Mr. Lee was the sole person responsible for this attack. This attack was committed by a single individual, and not by a group as noted in previous reports," said Sgt. Colin Frinzy of New Jersey State Police.
The Jets released a statement condemning the violent behavior.
Lee is being held on $75,000 bail.
