Jets TE Herndon suspended for four games

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has been suspended for the first four games of the season after a 2018 DUI arrest

Herndon could still appeal the NFL's decision in an attempt to get the suspension reduced.

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon was suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2019 regular season for violating the NFL's policy and program on substances of abuse, the National Football League announced Friday.

The suspension likely rises from Herndon's June 2018 arrest for driving while intoxicated. 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.

Sam Darnold will be without one of his top targets for the first four games of the season. The other driver, 76, suffered a bruised and gashed arm, according to police.

The subscription costs also factor into consumer's decision to go with Amazon as they are lower than the competition. Amazon Music's growth is largely because of Alexa and Echo devices.

A fourth-round pick out of Miami a year ago, Herndon had a promising rookie season, playing in all 16 games with 12 starts.

A first-time offender is usually handed a two-game suspension, but according to NFL.com, Herndon received four games, not two, because a woman at the scene later claimed bodily harm due to the crash.

After he pleaded guilty, Herndon's driver's license was suspended for 90 days. The Jets have a Week 4 bye, which means you'd lose Herndon (and that roster spot) for the season's 1st 5 weeks.

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. He finished the year with 39 catches for 502 yards and four touchdowns. The Jets could look to add a pass-catching tight end during training camp to fill in for Herndon at the beginning of the regular season.
