Arizona's Washington facing suspension, court case

Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, AZ (AP) -

Daryl Washington is not accustomed to playing with the reserves. He is, after all, one of the best young defensive players in the league.

But, facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance abuse policy, the Arizona Cardinals' standout inside linebacker finds himself working out with the second- and third-string players in training camp.

He also is facing assault and criminal trespass charges stemming from an incident with his former girlfriend. Washington appeared in court on Tuesday and says the case has been continued until October. He has pleaded not guilty.

Through it all, Washington has proceeded at camp pretty much as if it's business as usual, practicing at full tilt, signing a multitude of autographs and speaking with reporters, although he avoids the details of his problems.
