Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones will be suspended for the final three games of the 2008 NFL season.
Per Jaguars.com, the NFL announced today that Jones’ suspension, for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, will begin immediately.
Jones was arrested in Arkansas in July and charged with possession of a controlled substance. He had been appealing the subsequent suspension, but that appeal has now been denied.
Jones is the Jaguars’ leading receiver, with 65 catches for 761 yards.
