08/20/15 - G Oday Aboushi has been suspended without pay for the first game of the season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
According to Aboushi's agent, the suspension stems from a traffic stop in January in which police discovered marijuana in Aboushi's vehicle.
Aboushi, a backup guard, will miss the team's opener Sept. 13 against the Cleveland Browns. He will be able to return to the team Sept. 14. In the meantime, Aboushi is eligible to practice and play in all preseason games.
"News like this is never welcome," head coach Todd Bowles said. "We will support Oday as we continue with our preparations for the upcoming season."
Aboushi said, "I apologize for my actions and understand the repercussions. This is something I've learned from and I'm focused on moving forward."
Aboushi's suspension is the latest in a run of bad news for Bowles in his first year as coach. Quarterback Geno Smith is out with a broken jaw suffered in a locker-room scuffle, the secondary has lost safety Antonio Allen for the season and cornerback Dee Milliner for the first month or so, rookie receiver Devin Smith has a punctured lung, and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson is dealing with legal troubles and has also been suspended for the first four games of the season.

The Jets eventually had to settle for a field goal, which proved to be a pivotal few points in a narrow defeat.
