Redskins tight end Fred Davis arrested day after being suspended by NFL

By Thomas Leone,

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was arrested Thursday, the day after he was suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

Davis was pulled over in the late afternoon on Thursday in Fairfax County, Va. and was arrested for driving while intoxicated, according to the Associated Press.

This arrest comes one day after the NFL announced that Davis has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the league's substance abuse policy. This is the second time in his career that he has been suspended for using an illegal substance. Davis was suspended for four games in the 2011 season, according to NFL.com.

Davis released a statement saying that he unknowingly ingested a banned substance and that he is working with the NFL and the player's association to get everything cleared up, adding that he is staying in football shape so he can help a team in the future.

Davis struggled to produce for the Redskins in the 2013 season. He only recorded one touchdown and caught just seven passes for a total of 70 yards. Davis was also inactive for several of the Redskins' games in 2013.

Davis was a second-round draft pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, selected by the Redskins.
