Another Vikings player has been suspended for the start of the 2018 season. The NFL suspended receiver Cayleb Jones for four games after he violated the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
He won’t be available for an NFL regular-season game until Week 5, which starts Sept. 28 for the Vikings. Earlier in April, linebacker Kentrell Brothers was suspended four games for violating the same policy.
Jones, 25, spent last year on the Vikings practice squad and re-signed a futures deal in January. Jones, 6-3 and 209 pounds, went undrafted out of Arizona in 2016.
He’s the brother of Bills receiver Zay Jones, who was reportedly arrested in March for felony vandalism. Zay Jones was seen on a video obtained by TMZ Sports struggling with another man, identified by the site as Cayleb, and reportedly trying to jump out of a 30th-floor window until police arrived.
