Report: Former Bills RB Karlos Williams facing 1-year suspension

The suspensions keep on coming for former Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams.

The latest, his third, is for at least one year, according to ESPN's Field Yates. No reason for the suspension was given in a tweet from Yates' account.

Williams, who joined the Bills in 2015 as a fifth-round draft pick from Florida State, made his mark the right way as a rookie when he tied a record held by former New England Patriot Robert Edwards by scoring a touchdown in six consecutive games to start his career.

After that, it was pretty much downhill.

Williams showed up for offseason workouts overweight and even got heavier once training camp began. Last August, the Bills released him. He was subsequently suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Last October, the Pittsburgh Steelers signed Williams to their practice squad. On Nov. 23, the running back was suspended for 10 games, again for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

After the suspension was lifted, the Steelers signed Williams to a reserve/future contract in January. However, they released him on March 9.
