10/01/15 - LG Oday Aboushi is set to start his second consecutive game after drawing solid reviews in his starting debut.
09/17/15 - OG Oday Aboushi was claimed off waivers by the Texans. He was suspended for the first game of the season with the New York Jets for violation of substance abuse. He started ten games at left guard for the Jets last year but played left tackle in college (Virginia).
09/16/15 - T/G Oday Aboushi had his roster exemption lifted Tuesday (Sept. 15) and then was waived by the Jets.
09/16/15 - G Oday Aboushi was waived by the Jets on Tuesday, one day after he was reinstated to the active roster. He was claimed by the Texans on Wednesday. Aboushi was suspended for the season opener following an offseason arrest in which he was found to be in possession of marijuana. Aboushi, a fifth-round pick in 2013 out of Virginia, was inactive for his rookie season before starting 10 games at left guard in 2014.
09/15/15 - T/G Oday Aboushi was reinstated from reserve/suspended Monday (Sept. 14) and received a roster exemption that expires Tuesday.
09/06/15 - G Oday Aboushi was placed on reserve/suspended by the Jets Saturday (Sept. 5) for the first game of the season.
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.
10/17/14 - LG Oday Aboushi made the first start of his two-year career Thursday, when he committed a costly holding penalty in the first quarter of the Jets' 27-25 loss to the Patriots. Aboushi's penalty negated a nine-yard touchdown pass from QB Geno Smith to WR Jeremy Kerley. The Jets eventually had to settle for a field goal, which proved to be a pivotal few points in a narrow defeat.
10/14/14 - G Oday Aboushi, a fifth-round selection who was a healthy scratch for all 16 games as a rookie, is expected to move into the starting lineup at left guard following the season-ending knee injury suffered Sunday by another struggling 2013 draftee, third-rounder Brian Winters.
Aboushi has been active for all six games this season but has played just 33 snaps -- 31 of which came after Winters got hurt Sunday. He'll get a lot more snaps starting Thursday.
09/18/14 - OL Oday Aboushi finally made his regular-season debut Sunday, when he appeared as a reserve in the Jets' 31-24 loss to the Packers. Aboushi was a fifth-round pick out of Virginia in the 2013 draft but was inactive for all 16 games as a rookie. He was active for this year's season opener on Sept. 7 but did not play against the Raiders.
