Reports: NFL reinstates 5 players suspended for gambling

The NFL has reinstated five players who had been suspended indefinitely for violating the league’s gambling policy, multiple media outlets reported Thursday.

Current Washington Commanders edge rusher Shaka Toney, former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Rashod Berry and three former Detroit Lions — wide receiver Quintez Cephus, safety C.J. Moore and defensive lineman Demetrius Taylor — were reinstated.

Toney and four Lions players, including Moore and Cephus, were suspended last April. Lions wide receivers Jameson Williams and Stanley Berryhill were suspended for six games.

The Lions released Cephus and Moore when they were suspended.

The league suspended indefinitely Berry and Colts defensive back Isaiah Rodgers as well as free agent Taylor, who had been waived by the Lions about a month earlier. They were penalized for betting on NFL games in the 2022 season.

Rodgers, who remains suspended, later signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, who have his rights.
