Karlos Williams has had an up-and-down start to his career in the NFL to say the very least.

The powerful running back from Florida State was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fifth round of the 2015 Draft, with Williams dropping down scout rankings after being overtaken by freshman Dalvin Cook on the Seminoles depth chart.

Williams was cut by the Bills at the start of the season after turning up out of shape and failing the NFL's substance abuse policy. Well, Williams has violated that policy again and has been handed a hefty suspension.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the running back - now on the Steelers roster - is being suspended 10 games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Williams looked like he could be a real star after a rookie season that saw him run for 517 yards and seven touchdowns on 93 carries in 11 games while serving as the backup to LeSean McCoy in Buffalo.

Unfortunately, things have gone awry since then for the 23-year-old.

Hopefully, Williams can turn things around and we get to see him back out on the football field sooner rather than later. The talent is there for Williams to play in the league for a long time to come, he just needs to cut out all the extra stuff.
