FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets wide receiver ArDarius Stewart has been suspended by the NFL without pay for the first two games of the regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Stewart, entering his second NFL season, can return to the active roster on Sept. 17. He's eligible to take part in all preseason practices and games. Stewart participated in the Jets' first practice of training camp Friday.
Stewart was a third-round draft pick out of Alabama last year. He had six catches for 82 yards in limited action in his rookie season with the Jets.
New York could start the season with a handful of players serving suspensions. Cornerback Rashard Robinson must sit out the first four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, while wide receiver Robby Anderson, linebacker Dylan Donahue and tight end Chris Herndon are all facing potential discipline for off-field issues.
