Washington Redskins tight end, Fred Davis has been suspended indefinitely under the NFL substance policy according to reports.
NFL Network reporter, Ian Rapoport tweeted today: "Redskins TE Fred Davis was suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse."
It is not yet clear which substances Davis is accused of taking or abusing but it is worth noting that the policy and program includes all substances banned by the league.
This is not the first instance of Davis breaking NFL rules related to banned substances. In 2011, he and teammate Trent Williams were suspended for four games after failing drug tests.
Davis was assigned the non-exclusive franchise tag in 2012 although he struggled with injury. He re-signed with the Redskins for one year in 2013 and is set to become a free agent this offseason.
He had seven receptions for 70 yards last season and has over 2,000 career yards in six seasons for the Redskins.
Davis was drafted in the second round by the Redskins after playing three years for USC.
