The Jets will be without tight end Chris Herndon for the first four games of the 2019 season after a suspension handed down to him by the NFL for a DWI arrest in June 2018.
On Thursday, Herndon expressed disappointment in himself on Thursday at Jets training camp.
"It definitely sucks," Herndon said. "I've just got to deal with it. It was a mistake I made and I have to deal with the consequences."
As a rookie in 2018, Herndon had 39 catches for 502 yards and four touchdowns. After his suspension was announced, the Jets signed former Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin. Other tight ends on New York's roster include Daniel Brown, Trevon Wesco and Eric Tomlinson.
Due to the Jets' Week 5 bye week, he won't see his first game action until Week 6 against the Cowboys.
Herndon did not mention whether or not he will appeal the suspension.
