NFC East Watch: Redskins' Fred Davis, Trent Williams Suspended For Remainder of Season

Both players reportedly failed multiple tests for recreational drug use




    After a hot start, the Redskins season just keeps getting worse.

    The NFL announced on Tuesday that the Redskins tight end Fred Davis and offensive tackle Trent Williams have been suspended for the remainder of the regular season after reportedly violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substance Abuse.

    According to reports, both players failed multiple tests for recreational drug use, leading to what will come out to be a four-game suspension without pay. However, they are still permitted to use team facilities and work out at Redskins Park.

    Per the Washington Post, both players apologized to their teammates on Wednesday.

    “It was extremely genuine,” Redskins’ quarterback Rex Grossman said. “You can tell they’re both not exactly in the best mood right now. As a team, it was nice to hear.”

    Davis began to come into his own this season, catching 59 passes for 796 yards and three touchdowns. He is in the final year of his contract, and it’s possible that Washington will use the franchise tag on him. Williams, a second-year Oklahoma product with a huge upside, is signed through 2016.
