Daryl Washington reportedly to be suspended for all of 2014

The Pro Bowl linebacker will not be able to help the team's playoff hopes.

There is bad news for Arizona Cardinals fans. Fox Sports Radio 910's Mike Jurecki is reporting that Pro Bowl linebacker Daryl Washington will be facing a suspension for the entire 2014 season.

Washington recently agreed to a plea deal in connection with a domestic incident last offseason with his child's mother. His plea deal was to a felony offense with no jail time and it would be reduced to a misdemeanor after successful completion of probation.

The league has not announced the suspension.

Washington missed the first four games of the 2013 to a suspension under the league's substance abuse policy. This suspension falls under the league's personal conduct policy.

Initially, many believed that he would be suspended for one to four games, but as Seth Cox noted, felonies have usually gotten suspensions of eight games.

This is a huge blow to the Cardinals, who lost Karlos Dansby to free agency. They have Kevin Minter and Larry Foote who will likely step in as the starter in Washington's place. But he missed almost all last season with an injury and Minter has only played a handful of snaps in his career on defense.

Washington's offenses does deserve league punishment. Is it the right amount, Cardinals fans?
