The Jets may be licking their chops for a chance to face the Patriots this weekend, but one member of the team will need to cool his heels instead.
The NFL has suspended wide receiver Quincy Enunwa four games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Enunwa will be eligible to return to the team after they play the Bills on November 12 and will miss games against the Raiders and Jaguars in addition to the Week Seven date in New England.
Enunwa was arrested for domestic violence simple assault last year, although the charges were ultimately dropped in October 2014 after an agreement was reached that called for Enunwa to avoid contact with his accuser/girlfriend for 90 days. If he failed to do so, the case could have been reopened.
“We support and respect the NFL’s decision to suspend Quincy Enunwa,” a statement from the Jets reads. “The New York Jets share the NFL’s ongoing commitment to raising awareness of the frequency and impact of domestic and relationship violence, supporting survivors, and encouraging others to speak out and seek help.”
Enunwa has eight catches for 94 yards while playing in all five Jets games this season.
