Jets TE Chris Herndon has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon's potential breakout season will be curtailed by four games.

Herndon was arrested in Rockaway Township, New Jersey, in the early morning hours of June 2 last year after crashing into another auto, driven by a 76-year-old man.

Herndon is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games and will be eligible to return to the Jets' active roster on Monday, October 7, following the team's October 6 game at Philadelphia.

The Jets took the 23-year-old tight end as a fourth-round pick in the 2018 National Football League draft. He immediately formed a connection with fellow rookie Darnold and the two showed a nice chemistry throughout last season.

In Herndon's rookie season, he proved his ability to be a strong contributor in the passing game, racking up 39 catches, 502 yards, and four touchdowns.

Serena hopes to win her first grand slam title since the 2017 Australian Open and her 24th grand slam title overall. Svitolina, seeded No. 8, had never been to the final four at any Slam before this tournament.

The Jets and Herndon were likely prepared for the suspension. Herndon received a four-game suspension, not the normal two because a woman at the scene claimed bodily harm due to the crash, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Herndon wasn't seriously injured, though he easily could have been: according to State Police, after hitting the other auto, Herndon's SUV flipped and slid about 700 feet.

According to the police report, Herndon crashed into a Toyota Land Cruiser and totaled the vehicle, which was transporting a vintage automobile.

Herndon's Nissan Armada flipped over and slid about 700 feet on Interstate 80. One eyewitness told police that Herndon was driving in excess of 100 miles per hour.
