Reports say Dolphins' Williams failed drug test

(Feb. 20, 2006) -- Two different news sources are reporting that Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has failed a drug test, though team and league officials have not confirmed the reports.

The Miami Herald as well as Denver television station KDVR are reporting that Williams has violated the NFL's substance abuse policy, but neither has said whether Williams missed a required test or failed it.

If Williams does fail another test, it would be his fourth and he would face a one-year suspension by the NFL.
