Roster News: Kevin Pierre-Louis to be suspended for one game

League discipline was handed out today for an incident relating to one of their players that took place before he was a Jet:

Pierre-Louis was reportedly arrested for marijuana possession, along with minor traffic offenses during the offseason. He had spent 2017 with the Chiefs and was expected to return until this incident, which sources close to the linebacker have described as "out of character".

The veteran was expected to have a rotational role as a back-up inside linebacker this year but may have fallen behind the likes of Neville Hewitt and Kevin Minter on the depth chart because he's been injured.

Pierre-Louis won't count towards the roster limit in week one after which the Jets will have the option to activate him or cut ties with him, which gives them a little flexibility and potential cover if anyone gets hurt in the first game.

Other Jets who will be suspended at the start of the season include ArDarius Stewart and Rashard Robinson, but we are still waiting for confirmation of what action will be taken against the likes of Dylan Donahue, Chris Herndon and possibly Robby Anderson, who all have incidents which remain under investigation by the league.
