For the second consecutive year, a Jets player has entered an alcohol treatment facility. This time, it’s linebacker Dylan Donahue, who checked himself into a New York/New Jersey facility shortly after he was arrested on Feb. 26 after driving the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel and colliding with a small passenger bus.

Port Authority police charged Donahue with DWI and reckless driving.

“We respect and support Dylan’s decision to seek treatment,” a Jets spokesman said in a statement. “It is important for him to focus on his health right now. The organization has a full support system in place when he is ready to return.”

This isn’t the first time Donahue has been arrested for suspicion of DWI. On May 9, 2017, several weeks after being drafted, Donahue was charged with a DWI in court documents obtained by Newsday in Billings, Montana. The Billings Attorney’s Office said Donahue’s SUV hit an unoccupied parked car on the side of the road and flipped onto its roof. Donahue, who suffered minor injuries, failed breathalyzer and blood tests according to an affidavit provided by the Billings Attorney’s Office.

“It’s a pending legal matter and we have no further comment,” a Jets spokesman said regarding the Montana incident.

Concern has been raised about Donahue’s playing status with the Jets because he’s now subject to a suspension by the NFL for potential violations of the conduct policy.

The incident in the Lincoln Tunnel, which saw four passengers taken to the hospital for minor injuries, appears to have been a wakeup call.

“Dylan recognizes the seriousness of these issues and has voluntarily taken some important initial steps to deal with them,” Donahue’s agent Gary Uberstine said in a statement. “He is committed to this process of self-improvement, appreciates people respecting his privacy as he works to get healthy, and will address this matter publicly at an appropriate time.”
