The New York Jets have made a pretty good start to life under new head coach Todd Bowles, opening the season with a 4-1 record.

One thing that Bowles cannot control, however, is what his players got up to before he was in charge at MetLife Stadium.

That has come to haunt him today, as wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was suspended for four games by Roger Goodell and the National Football League.

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, Enunwa has been handed the ban for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy.

The suspension stems from Enunwa's arrest last August. He was charged with "domestic violence simple assault," according to the arrest report from Florham Park police, following an alleged altercation with his girlfriend inside a hotel room.

According to NJ.com, a police report said Enunwa grabbed his girlfriend by the ankles and pulled her off a bed, causing her to injure her head and finger. The charges were dropped when she decided not to pursue the charges of assault.

The Jets official account tweeted that they respected the NFL's decision and were moving forward.

Enunwa now won't return to the Jets lineup until week 11 when they take on the Houston Texans. Rookie wideout Devin Smith will likely take over a large majority of Enunwa's work.
