(ABC)–The National Football League has suspended Washington Redskins running back Silas Redd for “violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.”
Redd has violated this policy once before back in November.
The organization says Redd is suspended indefinitely and without pay. His suspension is set to begin immediately.
Redd, born in Connecticut, is only 24 years old. He played college football for USC and Penn State.
Redd, an undrafted free agent, signed with the Redskins in 2014.
During a preseason game in 2015, Redd tore his ACL and MCL and was placed on injured reserve.
In November 2015, while on injured reserve, Redd was placed on a four game suspension for violating the league’s policy for substance abuse.
He had 16 carries his rookie season in 2014.
