Washington Redskins cornerback Simeon Thomas was suspended without pay for the next four regular-season games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policies, the league announced Tuesday.
Thomas won’t be able to play in the final three regular-season games for Washington (3-10) and will be eligible to return to a team’s active roster after the first game of the 2020 season.
Thomas, 26, has mostly appeared on special teams this season for the Redskins, taking only 75 snaps on defense — 39 of which came in Sunday’s 20-15 loss at the Green Bay Packers. Thomas has eight tackles, with four coming on Sunday in a 20-15 loss to Green Bay.
Thomas, a 2018 sixth-round of the Cleveland Browns, spent the bulk of last season on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad and did not appear in a game. He signed with Washington on Sept. 10 off Seattle’s practice squad.
