New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is being suspended by the NFL for an undisclosed violation, a league source confirmed Tuesday.
Kerley practiced with the Jets on Tuesday, declining to answer any questions about a pending suspension.
Jalin Marshall is on the practice squad and Nick Marshall no longer is with the team.
Kerley, a fifth-round pick of the Jets in 2011, returned to the team in September after being released by the San Francisco 49ers. He wanted so badly to return that he initiated talks by reaching out directly to coach Todd Bowles.
In seven seasons, Kerley has 268 catche for 3,109 yards and 13 touchdowns.
The Rams are on their bye week, and first-year coach Sean McVay might have a new play for the offense when they face on the Giants on Nov. 5.
McVay appeared on the Rich Eisen Show on Friday and broke down a play drawn up by rapper Snoop Dogg.
“Don’t be surprised if you see this against the New York Football Giants.” ??
McVay was impressed by the play, which Snoop named, “Fake 31, Fake 24 Z-reverse.”
“I think it looks like something the Rams offense needs to think about putting in,” McVay told Eisen, saying Snoop “has some good X’s and O’s.”
McVay, who has the Rams leading the NFC West at 5-2, said the play could get slot receiver Tavon Austin involved with “a little misdirection” for running back Todd Gurley.
“Don’t be surprised if you see this against the New York Football Giants,” McVay said. “This is something that is going to get logged away in the Rams playbook.”
Snoop Dogg, who coaches youth football, drew up the play in a recent appearance on Eisen’s show and said he’d like to see the play executed by Ben Roethlisberger, Rob Gronkowski and Le’Veon Bell.
