March 8 (UPI) -- New York Jets receiver Jalin Marshall has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, the league announced.

Marshall will be eligible to participate in offseason drills as well as preseason practices and games.

Marshall issued an apology on his Twitter account:

"I really just want to apologize for this mistake. I inadvertently took medication without an exemption from the league on one occasion.

"It has not happened since & will not happen again. Already looking forward to 2017 and doing whatever I can to help this team win."

Marshall had 14 receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns last season. He also averaged 5.6 yards on 18 punt returns.

He played in just 10 games as a shoulder injury forced him to miss six contests.
