The receiver was suspended by the NFL for violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, the team announced Monday.
The 28-year-old has been a bit-player for the Jets of late. He has 22 receptions for 217 yards and one touchdown on the season but has seen his target-share dip with Robby Anderson becoming the Gang Green's go-to target.
Kerley played just seven snaps in last Thursday's win over the Buffalo Bills before leaving with a foot injury. The wideout has three catches for 24 total yards the past three tilts.
Jermaine Kearse could see an uptick in targets out of the slot in Kerley's absence.
