Washington Redskins running back Silas Redd has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the league announced Tuesday.

Redd missed all of last season after injuring his knee during the preseason. He was suspended four games in November for violating the same policy while on injured reserve.

Redd was already longshot to make the Redskins roster this upcoming season. He hasn’t played since the 2014 season, when he carried the ball 16 times for 75 yards and a touchdown. 

Patriots reportedly re-sign LaGarrette Blount

The Redskins initially signed Redd as an undrafted free agent out of USC in 2014.
