The Washington Redskins said defensive lineman Joe Joseph has expressed remorse for his arrest on charges of driving under the influence and that the team will withhold further comment until the matter is resolved through the courts.
The Redskins released a two-sentence statement Tuesday on Joseph's arrest. On Monday, less than 24 hours after making his NFL debut, Joseph was arrested in Loudoun County and charged with driving under the influence.
The Redskins' statement said Joseph is "very remorseful for what happened" as well as the embarrassment he caused his family and the Redskins.
Joseph, 25, joined the Redskins' practice squad Dec. 15 and was promoted to the main roster on Saturday.
