NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk native and Redskins' backup running back Silas Redd Jr., who was trying to come back from a devastating knee injury, is sidelined again with an indefinite NFL suspension for a second violation of the league's substance abuse policy, the Washington Post is reporting.
This latest news comes just months after a four-game suspension for the same reason. Redd is recovering from a torn ligament in his knee that caused him to sit out the entire 2015 season, the Washington Post reports.
Redd, who attended Stamford's private King School, was a lead running back at Penn State before transferring to Southern California, where he signed with the Redskins in 2014.
