OTTAWA — The Ottawa Redblacks say wide receiver Greg Ellingson was charged Friday with failing to provide a breath sample into a roadside screening device.
The Redblacks said in a statement Saturday morning that Ellingson will not participate in team activities while they "continue to collect information in this case."
The team did not say where the incident occurred.
Ellingson, a 29-year-old from Tampa, Fla., had five touchdowns and 1,086 yards for Ottawa this season.
He has played four seasons with the Redblacks since 2015 and played two years with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats before that.
