Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa has been suspended for the team’s next four games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, the NFL announced today (Twitter link via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com). It’s not clear whether or not Enunwa appealed the suspension, but the league doesn’t announce penalties until after the appeal process is complete, so the wideout won’t have his ban reduced or dropped.
Enunwa, 23, joined the Jets in 2014 as a sixth-round pick out of Nebraska. He didn’t see any real regular-season action in his rookie year, but he has earned a few looks in the first few weeks of the 2015 season. Through five games, Enunwa has been targeted 17 times, catching eight balls for 94 yards. More than half of those targets – and receptions – came in Week 3, when he racked up 50 yards on five catches against the Eagles.
Enunwa was arrested following an alleged domestic violence incident right around the start of the 2014 NFL season. The wideout later had the charges against him dismissed, but the NFL still decided to hand out discipline after completing its own investigation.
By sitting out the next four games, Enunwa will miss a handful of intra-conference games, including a pair of divisional matchups — he’ll be sidelined for the Jets’ games against the Patriots, Raiders, Jaguars, and Bills.
