ASHBURN, Va. (AP)Washington Redskins cornerback Simeon Thomas has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

The league announced Thomas’ suspension Tuesday that extends through the end of this season and Week 1 of 2020. Thomas is suspended without pay during that time.

Thomas became a surprise contributor in the Redskins’ secondary this season. He has played in 12 games and moved up the depth chart after the coaching staff decided to bench veteran cornerback Josh Norman.

The 26-year-old was a sixth-round pick of the Browns in 2018 out of Louisiana. The Redskins put Thomas on the reserve/suspended list and activated cornerback Danny Johnson off the physically unable to perform list.

Washington is 3-10 and hosts the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
