Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season through the league's substance abuse program. He is expected to be suspended for some amount of time for the upcoming season under the league's player conduct policy. 

Washington entered a guilty plea last month to charges stemming from a domestic incident with the mother of his child. He will serve no jail time, but it was a felony. 

Washington spoke to reporter Darren Urban (via and indicated that he expects to be suspended and is a little concerned because the amount of time is unknown. 

“I can’t say I hope nothing happens," he said. "Something is going to happen and I am a little worried. But I am just ready for a decision to know where I stand. It’s a waiting process right now.”

Washington said he is a little nervous because he doesn't know if it will be one game, two games, five games or another length. 

History would say that it could be as many as eight games, according to some research done by Seth Cox

Now Washington, the team and the team's fans must simply wait for the league to make its decision. The league tends to do things on its own time, so don't expect anything any time soon.
