Jets LB Copeland Suspended Four Games By NFL


The New York Jets will be without Brandon Copeland for the first month of the season as well, after the linebacker, who is coming off his best NFL season, was suspended without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, the league announced Wednesday.

The 28-year old Copeland owned up the error, explaining via Instagram that a supplement he took "was contaminated with a banned substance" that wasn't listed on the label.

Copeland will join tight end Chris Herndon on the suspended list to start the season. Herndon will sit four games because of a substance-abuse violation.
