Jimmy Garoppolo Faces 2-Game Suspension For Violating NFL’s PED Policy


Bad news for Jimmy Garoppolo as the NFL has suspended the quarterback for two games due to a violation of the league’s Performance Enhancing Substances Policy. The suspension was announced on Friday morning and Garoppolo is not expected to appeal, meaning he will be sidelined until Week 3 of the 2024 season.

Key Takeaway

Jimmy Garoppolo has been suspended for two games by the NFL for violating the league’s Performance Enhancing Substances Policy, raising questions about his future with the Las Vegas Raiders and his next career move.

Details of the Suspension

The suspension comes as a result of Garoppolo reportedly using a prescribed medication without a valid Therapeutic Use Exemption, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This news has put his future with the Las Vegas Raiders in jeopardy, as it is likely that he will be cut by the team following the league’s decision.

Uncertain Future for Garoppolo

If this spells the end of Garoppolo’s time with the Raiders, it will mark a disappointing turn of events after he signed with the team in March. His performance on the field has also been underwhelming, having played in only seven games and struggling with 1,205 yards, seven touchdowns, and nine interceptions.

While it remains to be seen where Garoppolo will land next, there is speculation that he may find a new team given the demand for quarterbacks in the league. However, his playing time for the 2024 season will be limited to 15 games due to the suspension.
