Jets guard Oday Aboushi has been suspended for one game for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Aboushi's representatives said in a statement that he was pulled over for a traffic stop in January, during which police recovered a “very small” amount of marijuana from inside the car. Aboushi “accepted responsibility” for the infraction and all other charges were dismissed.
“I apologize for my actions and understand the repercussions,” Aboushi said in a statement. “This is something I’ve learned from and I’m focused on moving forward.”
“News like this is never welcome,” Jets head coach Todd Bowles said. “We will support Oday as we continue with our preparations for the upcoming season.”
Aboushi was a 2013 fifth-round selection and started 10 games for the Jets last season after starting left guard Brian Winters tore his ACL in October.
