Jets TE Chris Herndon suspended 4 games

Jets TE Chris Herndon suspended 4 games

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini tweeted that while first-time offenders of the alcohol policy receive a two-game suspension, the circumstances of Herndon's situation meant he got a longer punishment.

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon, a key player on offense, was suspended four games Friday for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, stemming from a June 2018 drunken-driving arrest in New Jersey.

The league stated that Herndon can participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. He can participate in training camp and preseason games, but he will not be eligible to return until after the October 6 matchup against the Eagles. He pleaded guilty to DUI in June of 2018.

China vows to impose sanctions on United States firms supplying Taiwan military
The US state department declined to comment and the US firms involved in the Taiwan arms deal did not immediately respond. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, despite Chinese opposition, was permitted to make a stopover in NY on Thursday.

A fourth-round pick out of Miami a year ago, Herndon had a promising rookie season, playing in all 16 games with 12 starts. The driver, who was 76 years old, suffered a bruised and gashed arm. The NFL Network reported the extra two games were because a woman at the scene of the accident claimed bodily harm due to the crash. One eyewitness told police that Herndon was driving over 100 miles per hour. The Miami product was fined $639 and had his license revoked in New Jersey for 90 days as a result. He finished with 39 receptions for 502 yards and four touchdowns, including catching passes for scores in three straight games.

Eric Tomlinson is the only other Jets tight end returning from last season, after re-signing with the team in March.

NY now also has veterans Eric Tomlinson and Daniel Brown and fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco at tight end, but all three are known mainly for their blocking skills.
