Rams WR Stedman Bailey suspended four games for PEDs

The St. Louis Rams selected two wide receivers from West Virginia — Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey — in the 2013 NFL Draft, but it's fair to say that neither made much of an impact.

Bailey, the 92nd overall pick last year, finished his rookie season with 17 receptions for 226 yards in addition to two rush attempts for 33 yards and a touchdown.

If Bailey makes a bigger impact this season, it's going to be delayed as he will serve a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Rams have a Week 4 bye (see all 2014 bye weeks) so Bailey will be eligible to return for Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers. Bailey will miss four relatively fantasy-friendly matchups during his suspension: Vikings, Bucs, Cowboys and Eagles.

After all, the Rams receiving corps leaves plenty to be desired despite making five top-100 picks at the position over the previous three drafts: Austin and Bailey (2013), Brian Quick and Chris Givens (2012) and Austin Pettis (2011).
