Report: Rams RB Isaiah Pead suspended for Week 1
Though Rams running back Isaiah Pead is eying the starting running back job, he'll miss Week 1 of the 2013 season for a suspension.
The 2013 season isn’t off to such a hot start, either.
Pead has been suspended for the first game of the year without pay for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Though Pead can participate in the team’s offseason and preseason programs, he won’t be around for Week 1 vs. the Cardinals. He’ll be eligible to return to the team Monday, Sept. 9.
"Whole new era, whole new attitude, whole new team, whole new Pead," he said in April. "Now I'm just getting back to what I know what got me here and that's being the best in the workout that day, going home, coming back and giving my best in the workout that day. My goals, I really don't have one. I want to win every day and be the best person every day."
