Rams’ Jamon Brown Suspended By NFL

Rams offensive guard Jamon Brown has been suspended without pay for the first two games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He’ll be barred from playing against the Raiders and Cardinals before being eligible to return in Week 3 against the Chargers.

Brown, who is entering his fourth year in the NFL, was projected to open the year as the team’s starting right guard. For the first two weeks of the season, the Rams could plug interior lineman Austin Blythe as the starter. Alternatively, they could explore veteran options on the open market.

Last year, Pro Football Focus rated Brown as the 38th best guard in the NFL with an uninspiring 52.1 overall score. He did, however, do a respectable job of run blocking, per the advanced metrics.

Between now and the start of the season, Brown remains eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.

    Are you kidding me right now. Janine Brown violates the NFL drug policy and gets 2 games. Julian Edelman was suspended for violating NFL drug policy. The NFL can’t figure out what the substance it is. Not only don’t know what the drug is isn’t even on the NFL band substance abuse list of 71 drugs that are banned. So explain how he gets 4 games and Brown gets 2. Goddell is a disgrace to the NFL and has no set punishments for violating the NFL drug policy. All other sports have a policy in place except the NFL. Goddell should be fired
