Jets' Scott takes issue with timing of Redskins suspensions
New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott didn't take the time to voice his opinion directly to the media after Sunday's 34-19 victory over the Washington Redskins.
But according to the Newark Star-Ledger, Scott apparently had a strong enough conviction regarding reported suspensions of two Redskins players that he questioned during open locker room why Fred Davis and Trent Williams were allowed to play against the Jets Sunday. SI.com reported that the two players would be facing four-game suspensions for violating the league's banned substance policy.
Apparently, the two Redskins' players suspensions have not started yet because they have not received official notification of the violation from the NFL. Scott apparently had enough of an issue with that that he shouted to a teammate with reporters present, “Tell them about how they had two (guys) popped for steroids and now they’re playing."
Various reports have indicated, however, that both players likely tested positive for marijuana, not performance-enhancing substances.
