Jeremy Kerley, New York Jets WR, suspended four games for using PEDs

Jeremy Kerley, New York Jets WR, suspended four games for using PEDs”

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley has been suspended for the team's next four games for violating the league's performance enhancing drugs policy, the league announced.

Coach Todd Bowles said the team knew about the suspension "for quite some time", so it didn't come as a shock to the Jets. He also says he has "never used steroids in my life" and he will investigate why he was suspended.

Kerley, the Jets' starting punt returner and slot receiver, will be eligible to return Week 15, when the Jets travel to New Orleans to play the Saints. I'm a good athlete but anyone can look at my body composition and tell that I'm not a steroid user. I'm comfortable with those guys [Stewart and Hansen]. It all depends on the game plan and what we're trying to do. The Jets are visiting Tampa Bay this weekend.

The ban begins immediately for Kerley, who is eligible to return to the Jets' active roster on December 11, one day after the team's game against the Denver Broncos. In a statement, Kerley said he tested positive for Turinabol, a steroid which is typically administered orally. When I find out what substance was tainted, I will pursue all remedies at that time because this is not right.

Kerley, who turns 29 on Wednesday, was selected by the Jets in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft and returned to NY on a one-year deal in September after being released by the 49ers. He is eligible to return on December 11 and will be able to play in New York's Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints.

The 49ers released him just before this season began, and the Jets re-signed him.

Kerley is a valuable part of the offense because he's the No. 3 receiver.

In eight games this season, Kerley has 22 receptions for 217 yards and 1 touchdown on 27 targets. He has also assumed the punt returning duties after Kalif Raymond was cut in September. However, even more hard will be replacing him as the primary punt returner on the squad in the coming weeks. Rookie running back Eli McGuire could replace Kerley in that role, but Bowles said the Jets haven't yet made a final determination.
