Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was suspended by the NFL for the first two games of the 2018 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Jones pleaded no contest to a marijuana-related charge in February, stemming from a traffic stop on Oct. 1st of last year.
He entered a no-contest plea to the citation for driving with a controlled substance in his system in exchange for dismissal of tickets for speeding and operating without a license.

Jones was the team’s second-leading rusher in 2017, his rookie season, with 448 yards. He also rushed for four touchdowns. Consider his fantasy stock fallen. The NFL’s suspension policy is a joke.
