Redskins CB Culliver suspended one game


The Sports Xchange

The NFL suspended Washington Redskins cornerback Chris Culliver one game on Monday for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Culliver’s suspension without pay begins immediately. He will be eligible to return to the Redskins’ active roster on Monday, Sept. 21 following the team’s Week 2 game against the St. Louis Rams.

Culliver, while with the San Francisco 49ers, was arrested in Santa Clara, Calif., in March 2014, and charged with hit and run for leaving the scene after hitting a bicyclist with his car. A witness chased Culliver down, which led Culliver to threaten him with brass knuckles.

After the felony count of possession of brass knuckles was reduced, Culliver pleaded guilty on June 30 to misdemeanor possession of brass knuckles and misdemeanor hit-and-run.

Culliver, who signed a four-year contract worth $32 million with the Redskins this offseason, started in the 17-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins and recorded one tackle.
