According to Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 AM in Arizona, Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington will be suspended the entire 2014 season, though it’s unclear if it’s for violating the personal conduct or substance abuse policy.
The Cardinals expected some degree of suspension after he was sentenced to a year of probation for aggravated assault on a female, which would be reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor if he completes his probation.
That’s a huge blow to the Cardinals defense.
It's a blow to the Arizona defense, which was pretty stout in 2013. Washington was 5th on the team in tackles and registered three sacks in 12 games.
