Steelers RB Karlos Williams to be suspended 10 games

Karlos Williams will have more time off.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers running back is being suspended 10 games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, per a source informed of the situation.

The running back was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the substance-abuse policy.

It's been a horrible year for Williams. First, the running back showed up to Buffalo Bills camp overweight -- blaming empathy eating with his pregnant wife. Then he was hit with a suspension. Then the Bills cut ties with a player who had scored nine touchdowns the previous year. He went unclaimed on the waiver wire before later joining the Steelers' practice squad. Now he will be ineligible to play the next 10 games.

Williams displayed talent on the field his rookie year. He showed a sophomoric temperament off it his second season.
