NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Bailey has been suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to a source informed of the situation.
A person close to Bailey told Rapoport that the receiver did not take any performance-enhancing substances. It's a tough blow for the Rams, who were plotting a bigger role for Bailey in his second season.
The Rams didn't select a wide receiver with any of their 10 picks in the draft. Rapoport reported that the team was aware of Bailey's positive test and looming ban for some time.
