Veteran wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is expected to be suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s PED policy.
In the middle of all the NFL trade deadline craziness, this news came down the pipe that the New York Jets would be without the services of their veteran wideout, Jeremy Kerley.
Brian Costello of the New York Post was the first to report what the 28-year-old was being punished for.

While there have been no reports of how long the suspension is set to last, Kerley could still play against Buffalo on Thursday Night Football if he were to appeal.
Kerley, who spent the first five seasons of his career with the Jets, returned to the team this year after spending 2016 with San Francisco. He’s been hot and cold for the Jets with 22 receptions for 217 yards and his one, solitary touchdown.
With this latest news, the Jets will have to turn to some of the younger receivers on the roster. Which may end up being a good thing for the team.
