The Washington Post reports suspended free agent TE was arrested and charted with DUI in Fairfax County, Va. on Thursday.
A sad situation has taken a turn for the unbelievable. According to reporter Mike Jones, Davis was arrested at 3:45 PM Thursday afternoon. Already indefinitely suspended, it's fair to wonder if Davis will ever play another NFL down even though he's only 28. Davis has to get his personal life in order before he can even think about mounting a comeback.

NFL suspended free agent TE Fred Davis indefinitely for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
It had previously been reported that Davis was facing a six-game suspension, but it's much worse. It's his third strike and second suspension; Davis was suspended four games at the end of the 2011 season. The 27-year-old couldn't have had a worse past calendar year. He played sparingly for the Redskins in 2013 due to ineffectiveness and missed meetings. Davis also reportedly took naps while at team meetings. Now, he's been banned indefinitely. Davis is long on talent but has proven to be his worst enemy. He won't get a deal in free agency.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports impending free agent Fred Davis is facing a six-game suspension.
La Canfora indicates it's a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. At the end of the 2011 season, Davis was banned four games for a failed drug test. Davis, 28, played sparingly for Washington this past season, registering just seven catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in ten games of action. He's not going to be re-signed and is now one strike away from a yearlong ban.

With Jordan Reed still sidelined with his concussion, Davis and Logan Paulsen handled tight end duties. Davis saw three targets. His touchdown catch was a perfectly placed ball in the corner of the end zone by Kirk Cousins into Davis's hands. It was Davis' first score of the season. He'll play out his final two games as a Redskin before testing free agency in March.

Fred Davis caught two passes for 14 yards in Week 13 against the Giants.
Davis didn't start, but played the majority of snaps in the first quarter. He managed to make his first catch since Week 4, but also had a bad drop on the Redskins' final drive of the game. Davis doesn't have any fantasy value and will likely go back to being a healthy inactive if Jordan Reed (concussion) returns next week.

There was a report that Davis skipped team meetings during the week, even though he knew he was going to be active. Davis has tuned out and is simply looking forward to free agency.

Redskins TE Fred Davis will be active in Week 12 against the 49ers.
Davis has been a healthy inactive the last five weeks, but is now needed with Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for Monday night's game. He should see the majority of passing down work over blocking TE Logan Paulsen. Davis has just three catches for 25 yards this season and is not a recommended TE2 option for Week 12.

Redskins declared TE Fred Davis, QB Rex Grossman, RB Chris Thompson, LB Brandon Jenkins, S Jose Gumbs, OG Josh LeRibeus and NT Chris Neild inactive for Week 10 against the Vikings.
Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is active. According to CSN Washington, Davis is losing $500,000 in playing-time incentives by being inactive for the fifth time this evening. Otherwise, it's a quiet list for a Redskins team with relatively few injury issues heading into Week 10.
