Reshad Jones suspended four games for PED violation


The Miami Dolphins will open the season without Reshad Jones.

The team's starting safety has been suspended four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. The Dolphins are now down two important defenders due to suspension: Dion Jordan was also banned four games for a similar violation.

"I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for substance that is banned under the NFL performance enhancing substances policy," Jones said in statement. "I worked closely with the union to investigate what happened and I learned that a supplement I took caused the positive test. I deeply regret not investigating the supplement carefully before I took it, and I will never again take a supplement without having it checked."

Jones was a 16-game starter last season, finishing with 107 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception that was ran back for a touchdown. He signed a four-year, $30 million contract last August.
