Voice of the Redskins: DE Jarvis Jenkins suspended for PEDs

Washington Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins will be suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the NFL announced Friday.

In a statement, Jenkins said he was "shocked and confused" by the ruling.

"It's an obscure substance that I've never even heard of, and I still don't know how it got into my body," Jenkins said. "My only guess is that it came from one of the supplements I was taking around the time of the test, even though none of them listed anything banned."

Jenkins will be eligible to return to the Redskins' active roster Monday, Sept. 30.
