Jets' Seferian-Jenkins suspended 2 games by NFL

NEW YORK (AP) The NFL has suspended New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins without pay for the first two games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Seferian-Jenkins was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Florida last September while he was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The tight end was cut by the Buccaneers a few days later and claimed off waivers by the Jets.

Seferian-Jenkins pleaded no contest last month to a reduced charge of reckless driving. He had originally pleaded not guilty to a DUI charge.

Seferian-Jenkins is allowed to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, per NFL rules.

The 2014 second-round draft pick finished with 13 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown in nine games with the Buccaneers and Jets last season.
