National Football League suspends Jets TE Herndon 4 games for substance violation

Jets TE Chris Herndon has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season

Second-year tight end Chris Herndon, who is coming off a great rookie season, has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's substances of abuse policy, the team announced on Friday. He will be eligible to return to the Jets' active roster on October 7, after their October 6 game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Herndon was arrested in Rockaway Township, New Jersey, in the early morning hours of June 2 last year after crashing into another vehicle, driven by a 76-year-old man.

A statement from a league spokesperson has said that Herndon will be eligible to partake in the team's upcoming training camp practices and their quartet of exhibition games. The test revealed a blood-alcohol level over New Jersey's limit of.08, according to State Police Sgt. Lawrence Peele.

Herndon impressed as a rookie, finishing second on the Jets with 502 receiving yards, which also ranked second among rookie tight ends.

Celtics waiving Guerschon Yabusele: How do they fill out the main roster?
None of those options would be almost as exciting as Fall, who has been impressive in Summer League action. It's just the more realistic avenue for Danny Ainge at this point.

A first-time offender usually only gets two games unless the league determines there were aggravating circumstances. The four games is longer than the rumored two game suspension that had been previously reported, which makes Herndon a tougher player to value in fantasy. One eyewitness told police that Herndon was driving over 100 miles per hour.

A municipal judge in Rockaway Township, New Jersey, suspended Herndon's driver's license for 90 days in January and fined him $639.

The loss of Herndon for four games is a big blow to the Jets, who expect the tight end to be a major part of the offense this season. Other options include 2019's fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco and veteran Daniel Brown.
