Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Jones has struggled to stay on the field since signing a five-year, $33m contract in 2014.
The 30-year-old took a pay cut this off-season in order to avoid being released by the team.
Jones won’t be eligible to return to the team until October 3 – one day after their Week 4 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London – but will be allowed to participate in training camp and pre-season games.
He becomes the second member of his family to be suspended for PED use after brother Jon, a mixed martial arts fighter who faces a two-year doping suspension after testing positive for oestrogen blockers.
