It’s been a busy year when it comes to player suspensions and the Redskins Cedric Griffin became yet another player added to that list on Tuesday.
According to the Associated Press Griffin has been suspended four games without pay for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
The suspension is tough news for the Redskins, who will now be without their cornerback for the rest of the regular season.
That makes their postseason aspirations a little tougher. ¬†With four games to go the Redskins are currently in a battle with the New York Giants for the NFC East and are 6-6 on the season. ¬†The Giants are 7-5.
Head coach Mike Shanahan told the Washington Post that Griffin “made a bad decision” that lead to his punishment by the league.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs always tough to lose a football player, a guy who was doing a good job for us,‚ÄĚ Shanahan said.
