Redskins CB Culliver suspended for violating conduct policy

WASHINGTON (AP) Redskins cornerback Chris Culliver has been suspended by the NFL for the team's next game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The punishment was announced Monday.

Culliver will sit out Washington's Week 2 game Sunday against the visiting St. Louis Rams.

The league did not say exactly why Culliver was suspended. He was arrested in March 2014 on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and reckless driving.

The Redskins signed Culliver as a free agent in March after he spent four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland missed Washington's season-opening 17-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins after being suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
