    Isaiah Pead Suspended one game

    Rams RB Isaiah Pead suspended one game

    Posted by Mike Wilkening on May 31, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT
    Getty ImagesRams running back Isaiah Pead did not enjoy his rookie season.

    His second NFL campaign won’t be starting smoothly, either.


    Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Pead will serve a one-game suspension at the start of the regular season for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.


    The nature of the violation is unclear.


    A second-round pick of the Rams in 2012, Pead is regarded as one of the contenders for carries that once went to Steven Jackson, who signed with Atlanta in the offseason. However, he’s not going to get a chance to show what he can do in the season opener vs. Arizona.

    There it goes. Pead and Rok both drafted the same year, both most likely do the same banned substance, both get suspended 1 game, and both fighting for a starting job. Coincidence? I think not..

    Well, he can't blame Cincy's quarters system for getting a late start this time around.

    The guy should be doing everything in his power to make a positive impression after being a complete non-factor as a rookie and he does this instead. Nice job, Isaiah.

    All I can say is thankfully Game one is against the Cards...bad news, rather have these players rust being shaken off before the Atlanta game. So is Fisher going to impose his own justice on these players?

    Were both suspensions from weed or something worse?

    Either way, how can you screw something so important up when your starting career is probably on the line this year?

    Per Ian Rappoport:
    Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 10m

    On Isaiah Pead’s violation: I’m told #Rams knew about it for months. A “minor violation” from last year. Expectations still high for him


    How has Isaiah Pead done in the offseason? “He’s working his (butt) off.” All right. They see a big step forward, even with this blip


    Nice new development in the story, surprising though that he is getting suspended now instead of last year when it happened. I wonder what the "minor violation" was?

    From NFL.com:

    Isaiah Pead suspended for substance abuse violation
    By Dan Hanzus
    Around the League Writer

    Isaiah Pead's rookie season with the St. Louis Rams never got off the ground. His second season won't start on a promising note.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Pead will be suspended without pay for the first game of the 2013 season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

    The suspension takes Pead out of the equation for the Rams' season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 8. He will be eligible to return to the active roster a day later. Pead is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

    Pead, the 50th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is coming off a disappointing rookie season in which he struggled to pick up the playbook and eventually slipped behind seventh-round pick Daryl Richardson on the depth chart. He finished the season with just 10 carries. He spoke candidly about the lost season in a recent interview with his alma mater, the University of Cincinnati.

    "Honestly, I would call it miserable," Pead said. "Miserable life. Miserable four-five months."

    With Steven Jackson out of the picture, the Rams have an open competition for carries. In addition to Richardson, Pead is competing with rookie Zac Stacy and second-year pro Terrance Ganaway. Getting hit with a suspension does Pead no favors.

    UPDATE: Rapoport reports the team knew about Pead's violation for months, deeming it "minor," and continues to have high expectations for the running back.

    At least he's honest, but after doing a whole lot of nothing last year, starting off this year with a suspension, and describing his first year with the Rams as miserable...well, my magic eight ball's saying outlook not so good.
