Daryl Washington was on the field in his usual starting inside linebacker spot for Tuesday’s opening of the Cardinals’ organized team activities. Afterward, he said he was like everyone else, waiting to hear what the NFL will decide for his fate following his plea agreement last month on an assault charge.
“I can’t really worry about it because it’s something that’s going to happen,” Washington said of a possible suspension. “I can’t say I hope nothing happens. Something is going to happen and I am a little worried. But I am just ready for a decision to know where I stand. It’s a waiting process right now.”
Washington has been through this before, after finding out last year that he would serve a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. In that case, though, Washington knew exactly what was coming in terms of length. The unknown in this instance makes the waiting more difficult.
“You know about being prepared, but you still get nervous about the situation, whether it’s going to be one game, two games, five games,” Washington said. “All I can do is focus on what I can do, which is go out and try and get better every day.”
“I’m ready to have the situation over with,” Washington added. “I’m focusing on football and it’s good to be out here with my teammates.”
