    Another Suspension

    Yesterday, Andy Strickland was on the Roll Home show on 1380espn. He indicated that another rams player was having a hearing with the league and could face a suspension. He did not name the player. Anyone heard anything?

    Hopefully not an Offensive lineman, a starter.

    Re: Another Suspension

    Purely speculation but maybe it is a running back and that is why they picked up Pittman or a tight end and that is why they are looking at Cromwell.

    I'd put money on Byrd, but if it is another violation of the substance abuse policy, that could be bad news. Well, worse news I should say.

    Re: Another Suspension

    Byrd seems like the only logical explanation, until we hear otherwise.

    We have speculated as to why we have four TE's and Madison Hedgecock on the roster, and this may well be the reason. His suspension will not count against the 53 man limit, a la Fakhir Brown, and will keep us in good stead with three TEs and a fullback should McMichael or Klop go down.

    I think we'll see Brian Leonard treated as more of an everyman, spotting at Runningback, primarily, but if Hedgecock regresses or shows little improvement this season then there is an opening for him to play some fullback/short yardage aswell.

    When would this suspension be determined? This week?

    Hopefully it's Jimmy Kennedy. Oh I hope former Rams are in this equation.

    Re: Another Suspension

    I would imagine it's Byrd, hence the Rams choosing to keep four tight ends on the roster as they anticipate league action.

    Good thought, but how does the NFL suspend a player who is NO LONGER PLAYING?

    Maybe a retro-active suspension from which he has to refund some of the monies he acquired fraudulently. That is by imitating a professional football player...:x

    Re: Another Suspension

    Hopefully not a starter. My bet would be on Byrd as well. Some magazines said don't be surprised if he was suspended before the preseason (I guess for his past behavior) for both him and Wroten. Perhaps they have been lucky to last this far?

    Re: Another Suspension

    If someone can add the link to the radio show it might help. I tried but was having a problem with it. The show was on the 4th and Strickland comes on anout 5 pm. I believe he said the hearing was this week.
