FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets have waived guard Oday Aboushi a day after his one-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy ended.

The Jets didn't need to make a corresponding move Tuesday because Aboushi didn't count on the 53-man roster during his suspension.

Aboushi was pulled over on Jan. 10 by police, who found a small amount of marijuana in his car during a traffic stop in Morris Plains, New Jersey. He was suspended a game without pay by the NFL last month despite being given a conditional discharge on the marijuana citation.

Aboushi started 10 games at left guard last season after starter Brian Winters was injured. He was a fifth-round draft pick out of Virginia in 2013 and was expected to back up new starter James Carpenter.
