Running back Karlos Williams has been suspended 10 games by the NFL for another violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, NFL Network reported Wednesday.

Williams signed with the Steelers’ practice squad in October. He was suspended last summer for four games for a substance-abuse violation while with the Bills, who later cut him.

A fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2015, Williams averaged 5.6 yards per carry and ran for seven touchdowns in 11 games as a rookie. But he showed up out of shape to start this season, got suspended and then got cut, and after another suspension he’ll be lucky to get another shot.
