Two Redskins Suspended For Violation Of Substance Abuse Policy, According To Report

The Associated Press is reporting that Redskins TE Fred Davis and LT Trent Williams will both be suspended for the rest of the season after violating the league's substance abuse policy "more than once." That would mean both players would miss the season finale against the Eagles on New Years Day. That game, and the three leading up to it for the Skins, will most likely be about draft pick positioning more than anything... So losing their starting LT and leading receiver might not be the worst possible thing as far as Redskins fans are concerned. If anything, being without those two makes it more likely that they'll be in contention for one of the top QBs.

However, it isn't completely meaningless. Davis leads the team in receptions, receiving yards and TDs this year. He'll be a free agent after the season, but was certainly being seen as one of the bright spots on the Skins going forward. Trent Williams is supposed to be their franchise LT. Having both suspended for the remainder of the year raises serious concerns about their character and has to have Skins fans (and Mike Shanahan) wondering whether two positions he thought were covered, could now be seen as potential holes.
