Report: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Suspended Four Games for Failed PED Test

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins front seven will take another hit in the season's earlygoings.

The Redskins announced Friday that defensive end Jarvis Jenkins for the team’s first four games after failing a performance enhancing drugs test

The depth of the team’s front seven has already taken hits in the earlygoings of camp with Adam Carriker and Keenan Robinson likely out for the season due to injuries. Outside linebacker Rob Jackson is also slated to miss the season’s first four games due to a suspension as well.

As a result, this paves the way for recently converted nose tackle Chris Baker to log several first-team reps at left defensive end, and also increases the workload for veteran Kedric Golston. Newcomers Phillip Merling and Ron Brace’s chances of making the final 53-man roster have also increased.

Jenkins can still practice with the team and participate in preseason games.
