INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis Colts player has been suspended for a failed drug test.

Defensive end Arthur Jones will miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season due to a failed test for performance enhancing drugs. Jones will not be paid during his suspension.

Jones will be eligible for activation on October 3.

Jones hasn’t appeared in a regular season game for the Colts since 2014.

Jones is the older brother of former mixed martial arts champion Jon Jones, who was recently removed as the headliner of UFC 200 due to a possible anti-doping violation.
