Filed under: Jaguars, AFC South, NFL Police Blotter, NFL FansJoey Porter just did a little sack dance for Matt Jones. Last month, Mr. Peezy wondered aloud and in earshot of reporters how Jones, the Jaguars wide receiver, could get “caught with cocaine in his car and still plays the game and nothing happens.” Well, today, something happened.

According to Jaguars.com senior editor Vic Ketchman (via MDS at PFT), Jones’ 2008 season is over after … getting caught with cocaine in his car. See, Joey, justice may not be swift, but it has been served. The NFL announced on Tuesday that Jones has been suspended without pay for the final three games of the 2008 season, for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The fourth-year wide receiver leads the Jaguars with 65 pass receptions for 761 yards and two touchdowns. He is 16th in the NFL in receptions and 29th in yards receiving. The suspension stems from Jones’ arrest this summer, who somehow managed to not shoot himself in the leg through it all.
