Report: Steelers Practice Squad RB Karlos Williams Suspended 10 Games by the NFL

Karlos Williams,

The Steelers added running back Karlos Williams back in October hoping he would add some depth to the run game. Now it looks like he’s never going to be able to show anyone what he can do.

Today NFL Network reported that the second-year pro has been suspended 10 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Being in trouble is nothing new to Williams, who was waived in the preseason by the Buffalo Bills, and had to serve a four-game ban earlier this season for violating the NFL’s drug policy.

Reports say the running back showed up to Bills training camp about 20 pounds overweight and was put on the team’s active/non-football illness list.

Williams hasn’t appeared in a game for the Steelers this season, and with this latest suspension, it appears likely his NFL career may be already in serious doubt.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL.

    This is a picture perfect example of why major changes need made in the Steelers front office . The decision making between Colbert and Tomlin is utterly asinine . I said this was a major mistake a few weeks back when this was first posted on this site . The Steelers needed no part of this after the Martavis Bryant and LeVeon Bell suspensions . The Bills released this guy because he showed up to camp over weight , out of shape and was facing a suspension by the league . The Steelers knew this full well and went out and signed him anyway . There is no excuses on this one , and heads need to roll . Whoever pulled the trigger on this , needs shown the door and I mean gone ! There comes a point when enough is enough and these idiotic player personell decisions have to stop . Someone has to be held accountable .
