Running Back For The Chiefs Is Out For The Next 6 Games.
Running back Jerrion Ealy of the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad has been given a six-game NFL suspension for breaking the
organization's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.The NFL's suspension of Ealy was announced by the Chiefs on Monday.
Through Week 10, he is away on an unpaid leave of absence; he can rejoin the squad on November 14th.
Ealy, a 5-foot-8, 187-pound speedster for Ole Miss, rushed for more than 700 yards each of his three collegiate seasons and scored 26 touchdowns overall,
including two on kickoff returns. On 34 attempts, he averaged more than 25 yards per kickoff return.After his junior year, Ealy dropped out of college.
The Arizona Diamondbacks selected Ealy in the 30th round of the 2019 MLB Draft as one of the top baseball recruits, but he opted to play football and baseball at Ole Miss instead.
Ealy, along with linebacker Willie Gay Jr., is the second Chiefs player to get a suspension this year.
The Chiefs stated that veteran wide receiver Marcus Kemp has taken Ealy's place on the practise squad.
