Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy earlier in the week, before being arrested for driving under the influence just one day later.
It was a rough 48 hours for Davis, and Redskins general manager Bruce Allen is feeling “disappointed” for his tight end.
“I’m disappointed for Fred,”Allen said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “We really can’t comment on the suspension because that’s a league matter with Fred. But I heard, like everyone else about what happened yesterday, and that’s disappointing.”
While some may be wondering what the latest run-in with the law could mean for Davis’ future, Allen is not yet ready to comment.
“It’s too early because I don’t know the details of what happened yesterday,” Allen said. “There’s always a different side to the story. Unfortunately we’re not able to talk to Fred, because of the suspension. But, he is a resilient guy. He had to overcome a hurdle a few years ago, and he did it. He got injured and he worked hard to come back, and so it’s up to Fred what his future holds.”
The Redskins currently have Logan Paulsen and Jordan Reed on the roster with Davis headed towards free agency, so they will be just fine at the position.
For Davis, he will have to be wondering if his latest troubles will cause him to never find another home in the league.
