Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, the team announced Friday.

Colvin, 24, violated the league’s performance enhancing substances policy. His suspension is without pay.

“We have been aware for some time of the impending suspension on Aaron Colvin,” general manager David Caldwell said in a statement. “We are disappointed in this situation, but we know this is not indicative of Aaron’s character or the type of person that he is.

“We will be supportive of him and we stand by him as he takes the proper steps to overcome what transpired. Nobody is more disappointed than Aaron himself.”

He was selected by Jacksonville in the fourth-round of the 2014 draft out of Oklahoma.
