Now, the NFL has weighed in with their punishment, hitting the guy with a 4-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He will be eligible to return to the Jets' active roster on October 7, after their October 6 game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

The suspension likely rises from Herndon's June 2018 arrest for driving while intoxicated. The test revealed a blood-alcohol level over New Jersey's limit of.08, according to State Police Sgt. Lawrence Peele. The four games is longer than the rumored two game suspension that had been previously reported, which makes Herndon a tougher player to value in fantasy.

The Jets selected Herndon in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Neither Herndon nor the 76-year-old driver was seriously injured. The Miami product was fined $639 and had his license revoked in New Jersey for 90 days as a result.

The New York Jets will have to navigate through the first four games of the 2019 season without one of their most potent offensive weapons. He finished with 39 receptions for 502 yards and four touchdowns, including catching passes for scores in three straight games. Remaining on New York's depth chart are Daniel Brown, Trevon Wesco and Eric Tomlinson, who are all considered primarily to be blocking tight ends.

NY now also has veterans Eric Tomlinson and Daniel Brown and fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco at tight end, but all three are known mainly for their blocking skills. According to Pro Football Focus, Herndon graded out as the league's 12th best tight end and generated a 110.3 passer rating when he was targeted.
