ST. LOUIS (AP) _ St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Rokevious
Watkins has been suspended without pay for the season opener for
violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
The 338-pound Watkins was a fifth-round pick last year and
played in one game his rookie season before going on injured
reserve with an ankle injury. He's expected to contend for playing
time this season and is eligible to participate in offseason and
preseason practices and games.
The Rams announced the suspension Wednesday. They started
organized team activities earlier in the week.
