Claude Wroten of the St. Louis Rams has been suspended without pay for a minimum of one year for violating the NFL Substance Abuse Policy. Wroten is eligible to be reinstated no sooner than May 30, 2009.
That is all of the information that the team is releasing at this time. Wroten was listed fourth on the depth chart at defensive line, so the impact will have little impact on the team. Adam Carriker, last year’s first round pick and LaRoi Glover are the starters with Clifton Ryan as their backup.
