ASHBURN, Va. (AP)- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams are set to play for the first time since Dec. 4 in Thursday's preseason opener after they were suspended for the final four games of 2011 for failing multiple drug tests.
Davis and Williams get tested two or three times a week and meet weekly with a counselor. If either tests positive this season, he'll be suspended for a year.
Davis was having a career year with 59 catches and 796 yards before being suspended.
While Williams has four years left on his 6-year, $60 million contract, Davis is playing under the $5.446 million franchise tag, knowing a huge payday could well await next winter if he produces and stays clean.
