NEW YORK — Jeremy Kerley, a former Hutto High School quarterback and Texas Christian University wide receiver, told New York Daily News sources Tuesday morning he expects to be suspended from the Jets for violating league policy.
Per an initial report by Mannish Meta of the Daily News, the length and start date were not stated by Kerley. The (3-5) Jets face the Bills during Thursday Night Football at MetLife Stadium.

Kerley accumulated 800 yards rushing as a senior at Hutto, helping the Hippos reach the UIL 3A playoffs for the second consecutive year. He amassed 120 receptions, 1,299 yards, and 12 touchdowns in 2010, helping Andy Dalton and the Horned Frog, finish the season 13-0, earn a No. 3 BCS ranking Mountain West Conference title and Rose Bowl wins.
He was only the 13th player in TCU history to reach 50 receptions in a season and the first since Jimmy Young totaled 59 in 2008 and tied Mike Renfro’s 1977 TCU record with a team-leading 10 touchdown receptions. Kerley had at least five catches in seven of TCU’s 13 games and with the addition of his two rushing scores, Kerley led the TCU offense with 12 combined touchdowns.
Kerley, the Jets’ fifth-round pick in 2011, signed a one-year deal after getting cut by the 49ers (64 rec, 667 yards) in September. He has 22 receptions for 217 yards and one touchdown this season and has been the Jets’ primary punt returner with a 5.5-yard average on 15 returns.
The two-time District 18-3A MVP and 5-foot-9 and 188-pound former 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals 4-star Lone Star State speedster played five seasons with the New York before getting cut in 2016.
