Trent Williams, Fred Davis Suspended For Rest Of Season For Failed Drug Tests, According To Report

According to reports, tight end Fred Davis and tackle Trent Williams will be suspended four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Last month, a Yahoo! report surfaced that Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams and tight end Fred Davis were among 11 players that violated the league's substance abuse policy during the lockout. That news resurfaced again on Sunday afternoon, when Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter tweeted that both Williams and Davis will be suspended for four games - ending their 2011 seasons.

Via Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated:

BREAKING: Redskins players Fred Davis and Trent Williams suspended four games for failed drug test.

It's still unclear what substance Williams and Davis took, except that it was recreational drug use and not a performance-enhancing substance. While Williams has struggled with injuries all season, Davis has broken out in his fourth season with the Skins. He leads the team with 53 catches for 697 yards. It's certainly a disappointing ending to his season, and more off the field distractions just one week after the Skins snapped a six game losing streak.

The two players will begin their suspension next week.
