A United Airlines jet skidded off the runway after landing on Saturday at Newark Liberty International Airport, briefly halting flights, officials said.

The left landing gear of the Boeing 757 was stuck in a grassy area after Flight 627 from Denver landed in Newark around 1 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration said. No injuries were reported, the FAA added.

Flights in and out of the airport were briefly suspended, the airport said, but had resumed with delays of close to two hours by close to 3 p.m.

United Airlines did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
