Daryl Washington Suspended for Entire 2014 Season

Well, this is as big as the Cowboys losing Sean Lee to a torn ACL. Arizona inside linebacker Daryl Washington will miss the entire season, suspended due to the league's substance abuse policy.

(Beating up your ex-girlfriend is not a good thing.) The Cardinals may need to scramble now for veterans to play next to Kevin Minter.

Sean Lee Tears ACL, Done for Year

When I saw this news, I literally screamed "Oh, for crying out loud" at my computer, and I'm not even a Dallas fan. I just like good players when they get to actually play. So, who takes over?
