NEW YORK (AP) - Two former West Virginia stars-turned-N-F-L-players have been suspended under the league's personal conduct policy.

Adam "Pacman" Jones of Tennessee was suspended for the entire 2007 season today and Chris Henry of Cincinnati for eight games.

N-F-L commissioner Roger Goodell announced the suspensions Tuesday.

Jones could be reinstated before season's end if he adheres to a strict set of conditions set by the N-F-L.

Jones' off-field conduct has included ten incidents where he was interviewed by police. The most recent took place during the N-B-A All-Star weekend in Las Vegas. Police there recommended felony and misdemeanor charges against Jones after a fight and shooting at a strip club paralyzed one man.

Henry was arrested four times in a 14-month span, resulting in two benchings by coach Marvin Lewis and a two-game league suspension. He was one of nine Bengals arrested in nine months.

Both the Titans and the Bengals say they support the suspensions.
