The news came out this morning that linebacker Daryl Washington is being investigated in a domestic dispute from Wednesday night. It’s very early in the process — no arrests have been made — and until/unless something else happens, it’s tough to know exactly what direction this will take. In 2010, linebacker Joey Porter was arrested right after he signed with the Cardinals, and that ended up going no further because there wasn’t a case.
“These are serious accusations that we are closely monitoring,” the Cardinals said in a statement. “Until all the facts are determined, and out of respect for the process, we will decline any further comment at this point.”
Washington was just suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. More legal issues could further impact Washington’s playing time, but again, it is way too early to know if that’s how it is going to play out.
