Redskins RB Silas Redd Suspended Indefinitely For Substance-Abuse Violation


The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday that RB Silas Redd has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating league’s substance-abuse policy.

This is Redd’s second substance-abuse violation since Novemenber when he received a four-game ban from the league.

Redd, 24, signed on with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of USC back in May of last year. He’s in the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $600,000 for the 2015 season.

In 2014, Redd appeared in 14 games for the Redskins, rushing for 75 yards on 16 carries (4.7 YPC) to go along with eight receptions for 107 yards receiving and one total touchdown.

Last year, Redd was placed on season-ending injured reserve after suffering an ACL injury back in August.
