St. Louis Rams RB Trey Watts suspended four games

Print

The NFL announced Friday that St. Louis Rams running back Trey Watts has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2015 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Watts, 24, saw just 14 snaps in the backfield in 2014, earning 30 yards on seven carries. He mainly participated on special teams in 14 games, compiling five tackles.

With the addition of rookie Todd Gurley to the Rams backfield, it's unlikely that Watts would provide any depth outside of special teams play and could struggle to make the roster.

Watts can participate in all offseason activities and preseason games.

The second-year tailback is eligible to return to the Rams' active roster on Monday, October 5 following the team's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
