    REDSKINS EXPECT NFL TO SUSPEND DAVIS, WILLIAMS

    <font size="4"><font size="3"><font size="3">REDSKINS EXPECT NFL TO SUSPEND DAVIS, WILLIAMS

    Excerpt: "</font></font></font>It was apparently too much to ask. The Washington Redskins just
    can't seem to get through a season without a major off-the-field distraction.



    Players and coaches waited Monday for the NFL to formally announce that two
    of Washington's top offensive players -- tight end Fred Davis and left tackle
    Trent Williams --
    will be suspended for the rest of the season for violating the league's
    substance abuse policy, a blow to coach Mike Shanahan's hopes to build a team
    with a reputation for high-character players. </p>


    "It's just something else that's kind of added to the Redskins drama,"
    linebacker <a href="/nfl/players/playerpage/405385/lorenzo-alexander">Lorenzo
    Alexander</a> said. </p>


    Shanahan said he expected to hear something from the league office "within
    the next 24 hours" about Davis and Williams. He otherwise danced around many
    questions about the topic, citing NFL confidentially rules. </p>


    Davis and Williams are expected to be suspended for the Redskins' remaining
    four games, two people with familiar with the decision told the Associated Press
    on Sunday. The two people spoke on condition of anonymity because no official
    announcement had been made. </p>


    One of the people told the AP that Davis and Williams were among 11 who
    failed drug tests during a lockout-related grace period negotiated between the
    NFL and the players' union. The other nine players' cases were dismissed because
    they were first-time offenders; Davis and Williams each has tested positive more
    than once, the person told the AP. </p>


    "It is disappointing," Alexander said, "because everybody's aware of the
    rules and how the NFL carries out the drug policy." </p>


    Shanahan said Davis and Williams reported as usual to the training facility
    Monday and were watching film, presumably of Sunday's 34-19 loss to the New York
    Jets. Neither player appeared in the locker room during the period it was open
    to reporters." Read more... </p>

    lol that offense without Fred Davis should be easier to handle for Fewell and the Giants defense.
