Colts’ Arthur Jones suspended four games for PEDs

AP

Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Jones can participate in training camp and the preseason but will have to sit out the first four games of the regular season. He can return to the Colts on Monday, October 3.

This is the second time this month that a member of the Jones family has been suspended for violating a PED policy. Jones’s brother, UFC fighter Jon Jones, was pulled from his light heavyweight championship fight after he tested positive for two substances banned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. (The Joneses also have a third brother, Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones.)

Arthur Jones missed the entire 2015 season after suffering an ankle injury in the preseason.

    Wow. Considering the drama surrounding his brother Jon — this brings new meaning to the term, “Keeping up with the Joneses.”

    Chances are if you test Chandler he tests positive too.

    00o,

    does that mean the Patriot knew Jones were going to be test positive? and trade him out?

    or it was just same issues with contract $ and they trade him out?

    Guess we’ll find out soon enough.

    I love it when anything bad happens to the Colts

    The Jones brothers probably do some training together. There have got to be legal substances these guys can take to get somewhat similar results.

    Four games. Just like Tom Brady.

    Arizona getting nervous right about now and just hoping their brother beat his test.

    At this rate the NFL is going to have to cut games to 7 on 7 for the first four weeks.

    Were Jon and Arthur at least wearing clothes?

    I thought Goodell only put is he’d patriot players? Or at least according to their fans.

  13. tootitan says: Jul 22, 2016 5:07 PM

    And we keep hearing how the Jones boys come from a “good” family.

    Chippy the Pat’s just live in your head, it’s pretty sad.

  16. Ferdinand says: Jul 22, 2016 6:25 PM

    You know how hard the CBA and League indifference makes it to actually get caught for PEDS? How stupid are you, dude?

  17. patsbrat says: Jul 22, 2016 6:29 PM

    What did Mama Jones put in last week’s Sunday dinner stew?

  18. jagsfanugh says: Jul 22, 2016 6:31 PM

    Wow, is this happening to every team. These kids need to quit doing junk and get with the program.

    Another Ryan Grigson ‘I know he’s done nothing of note up til now, but I’m telling you he’s great so I’ll pay him like a star’ signing shines through like the rest have.

    At least Trent Richardson was healthy…

    #Bust #FireGrigson

    Football players are big, so that would leave no room in a head for anything else.

    The free agent “bust” gets “busted?”

    I’m sure it’s all the Harvard and MIT students.

  23. riraider says: Jul 22, 2016 7:31 PM

    Not to worry, they all have a home with Denver!

  24. charger383 says: Jul 22, 2016 11:04 PM

    Let’s just cancel the first 4 games this year

  25. tonebones says: Jul 23, 2016 12:55 AM

    No problem. He’ll still get his super bowl ring this year. He just gets a little longer off-season.

    Since the colts knew and its about the integrity of the game, they must now hire Bernie Sanders to be their emotional support leader since he has nothing else to do

    Get your facts straight before you post. There are three Jones’…This Arthur , who was with the Ravens before the Colts. Jons the fighter , and Chandler was at Syracuse before the Patriots drafted him and traded him to the Cardinals after he showed up half naked at police station high as a kite…….we agree on one thing……all three of them are on drugs…….be well
