One of the Green Bay Packers' talented young running backs is set to miss the first two games of the 2018 NFL season.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says  that the NFL has suspended Aaron Jones for two games next year.

The violation involves the league's substance abuse policy. 

I an Rapoport of NFL.com  says the suspension involved an arrest in 2017, where  he was admitted to smoking marijuana.

There was no initial word about an appeal.

Jones tweeted that he will accept his suspension, saying he regrets the mistake he made last year.
