'Skins Davis, Williams suspended for drug tests?

A few weeks ago, reports began surfacing that a number of NFL players (11 to be exact) failed drug tests and that a pair of Redskins -- offensive tackle Trent Williams and tight end Fred Davis -- could face suspensions.

But since then it's been pretty quiet surrounding Davis and Williams. Until Sunday anyway, when Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter reported that both Williams and Davis received four-game suspensions for failed drug tests.

Trotter reports that the pair of Redskins initially received season-long suspensions, but had them reduced as part of the NFL and NFLPA's settlement. The other nine players who were nailed for failed tests were busted during the grace period following the end of the 2011 lockout.

Williams and Davis, per Trotter, failed the tests during the season, which is why they received the four-game suspensions.

The pair were not suspended for Sunday's game against the Jets (currently underway -- follow here) because they did not receive notice from the league in time.

However, the season is effectively over for Davis and Williams, as the Redskins have just four games left. Barring a miracle playoff run, the pair won't play against this season.

'Skins Davis, Williams suspended for drug tests?

Hi royk ... do not know for sure.  Just offering my opinion (quite angrily as you can tell) based on the EPIDEMIC of young males in the Washington DC Metro Area who utilize weed as a recreational drug.  In addition, having interacted (albeit briefly) with both of these two players at team functions ... I strongly suspect they get HIGH.

Again, if I am wrong ... apologies to all involved.  Really, who am I but a poster on a CBSSports.com message board.

Williams will lose close to 2M for the suspension and Davis is in a FA year so it may cost him much much more. I have not heard anything about Davis, but the rumor is Williams was a cold medication that is on the banned substance list so he should have known better.

The funny thin is these guys ar going to loe millions while a guy who stomped on another player on the field gets 2 games and loses only about $400k. Se ya next year Trent! Davis is an UFA so who knows about him.

Way to keep it real potheads.  Gotta get your smoke on.  Props on embarassing the organization that drafted you and the fans that cheer for you.  The sad thing is that you won't be getting a season long suspension.  I can't imagine this 4 game suspension will make any difference in your lifestyle going forward. 

Hope it was worth it.  Selfish & Stupid.  And you are supposed to be Professionals.  Parents buy their kids Redskin jerseys with your name and number because you can play football.  Way to be for the kids.  Brain cells probably too scrambled already to make good decisions.  Play it off like it is just some form of adversity you have to overcome. 

Season long suspensions?  Are you serious?  You cannot put the weed down long enough to do your job?  Are you serious?  Did you think by rolling it in a Grape Swisher Sweets that it was going to mask the weed in a drug test? 

So tired of you punks.  You just do not get it.  Can only hope that you face some real consequences in the future.
