RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Washington Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins has been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.
    
Jenkins released a statement Friday saying he was “shocked and confused” to learn that he had tested positive for a banned substance.
    
Said Jenkins: “It's an obscure substance that I've never even heard of, and I still don't know how it got into my body. My only guess is that it came from one of the supplements I was taking around the time of the test, even though none of them listed anything banned.”
    
Jenkins remains eligible to practice at training camp and play in preseason games. He was on the field working with the first-string unit during Friday's practice when the suspension was announced.
