According to multiple sources, Redskins cornerback Cedric Griffin has been suspended four games by the NFL for performance enhancing drugs. Griffin is in his first year as a Redskin and is coming off, arguably, his best game of the year against the Giants. The veteran corner had a couple of key pass breakups last night. So far this year he has 33 tackles and has forced a fumble.
Since the suspension has been announced by the league, it means that the appeal process has already played out. Griffin is the second Redskin to violate the substance abuse policy this year, joining fellow member of the secondary Tanard Jackson. He is also the fourth Redskin to be suspended over the past two years.
Griffin's suspension will run the rest of the regular season and no corresponding roster move has been announced by the Redskins as of yet.
