Jets DT Sheldon Richardson apologizes for his drug suspension; Marijuana use

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that the suspension is for marijuana use.

Richardson, who made his first Pro Bowl last season, will not be eligible to return until the Jets’ Week 6 matchup against Washington since they have a bye during Week 5.

I apologize for letting down my family, teammates, this organization and the fans. However, words aren’t enough. This is something that can only be addressed by how I handle myself from this point on. I don’t want this to take away from what the team is trying to accomplish. While I won’t be there at the start of the regular season, I will do whatever I can to support my teammates until I’m able to return to the field.
