Washington - Washington Redskins rookie tackle Joe Joseph was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs early Monday morning.

The Post reported Monday afternoon that a public information officer for Loudoun County, Virginia's Sheriff's Office held a 25-year-old male by the name of Joe Louis Joseph in custody, but did not confirm whether or not he was a Redskins player.

However, the paper was able to match a booking photo with the player's NFL.com bio to confirm it was Joseph, who made his debut in Washington's 20-17 overtime victory at Jacksonville on Sunday.

Joseph had been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster prior to the contest.
