Fred Davis is off to a fast start Sunday against the Jets, but it may be his last appearance of the season.
SI.com’s Jim Trotter and FOX’s Jay Glazer report that Fred Davis and Trent Williams will both be suspended four games starting next for failing a drug test just after the lockout ended.
The suspension indicates that there have been multiple prior incidents for both players. (The NFL only suspends a player under the league’s substance policy if there are three incidents.)
The players are reportedly aware of the punishment. The suspensions are part of the negotiated agreement between the NFL and the NFLPA in the wake of the lockout.
Players unexpectedly were drug tested without a grace period right after the new CBA deal was reached.
