The Sports Xchange

St. Louis Rams running back Trey Watts received a four-game suspension from the NFL on Friday for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

Watts will sit out the first four games of the regular season before he is eligible to return on Oct. 5 after the Rams’ game against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 4.

But before the suspension takes effect, Watts will be eligible to participate in all offseason activities and in preseason games with the Rams.

Watts made the team as an undrafted free agent from Tulsa last year and played in 14 games as a rookie, rushing for 30 yards on seven carries.

Watts is the son of former Oklahoma quarterback and U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts.
