According to multiple reports, New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley has been suspended by the NFL for violating league policy.
Kerley, who is currently working through his second stint with the Jets, has been quiet over the past few weeks making only three catches for 85 yards.
The Jets signed Kerley back to the team at the start of the season in light of his veteran experience and how it could potentially help a young Jets team amidst a rebuild. He was released by the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason.
Now with Kerley suspended, the Jets will likely look to utilize wideouts ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen more in the passing game. Standouts Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse will also likely see a heavier workload.
The length and reasoning behind Kerley’s suspension is currently unknown as multiple reports have stated that it is an “undisclosed” suspension by the NFL.
A source close to the situation has reportedly said it is in violation of the league’s PED policy however, which could leave Kerley unavailable for 4-10 games.
