1 Ainge Suspended on Sun 23 Nov 2008, 2:06 am

Ainge the NEW YORK JETS 4th string QB docked four games for violating drug policy

November 22, 2008

A second Jets player, this time quarterback Erik Ainge, has been found in violation of the NFL's drug policy.

"Erik Ainge of the New York Jets has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL policy on steroids and related substances," the league said in a statement released late Friday afternoon.

Ainge can return to the team Dec. 15, a day after the Jets play the Bills.

"We respect the league's decision and look forward to Erik's return," a Jets spokesman said.

Ainge's suspension has no immediate impact on the roster, as he was put on injured reserve Oct. 29 with a foot injury. The suspension does cost Ainge money, however, as he will forfeit four game checks.

The other Jets player to be suspended this season was running back Jesse Chatman, who missed the first four games. Chatman, coincidentally, also was put on injured reserve Oct. 29 after suffering a knee injury against the Chiefs on Oct. 26.
