Jets’ Brandon Copeland suspended 4 games for PED violation

The Jets are losing another linebacker to start the season.

Brandon Copeland has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, according to ESPN. The Jets had already lost Avery Williamson to a season-ending ACL injury, which he suffered earlier this month during New York’s second preseason game.

Copeland will be allowed to practice and participate in his team’s final two preseason games, but he won’t be able to return to the roster until Oct. 7 after the regular season starts.

After the suspension was announced, Copeland revealed on Instagram that he took a supplement that “was contaminated with a banned substance,” but it wasn’t listed on the label.
