Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington will be suspended for at least the entire 2014 season. Reports came out earlier today from Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports that he had been suspended. Now it has been confirmed by the Cardinals that he is suspended for testing positive for weed:

Washington was sentenced to a year of probation after pleading guilty to an aggravated assault charge on a female in April. Washington also played in 12 games in 2013 after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL Drug Program.
It looks like the league got him for violating the substance abuse policy again according to the Cardinals website.
