Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones suspended four games for PEDs
Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
The Colts announced the news on Friday. Jones can return Oct. 3 ahead of Indianapolis’s game against Chicago, and is eligible to participate in off-season and preseason activities.
Jones signed a five-year deal in 2014 worth $33 million. He missed the entirety of last season with an ankle injury he suffered in the preseason, and has played just nine games for the Colts.
Jones, 30, is the older brother of Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones and mixed martial artist Jon “Bones” Jones, the latter of whom recently tested positive for two banned substances and was pulled from his UFC light heavyweight championship fight as a result.
