The NFL suspended two players on Wednesday for allegedly violating the league’s drug policy.
Tight end in the Los Angeles Rams, Bryan Hopkins and Pittsburgh Steelers, Salama Damontay Kaze, both will miss their teams’ next three games.
Hopkins, son of former Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans offensive linebacker Brad Hopkins, earned four passes for 47 yards for the Rams in the 2022 Super Bowl after Tyler Higby missed the game through injury and Kendall Blanton sustained a shoulder injury in the first half. .

This year, Hopkins has been on the field for just eight shots in the Rams’ first two games.
Higbee is the only tight end on the active Rams list after Hopkins is shut down, so the team will have to bring in someone from the coaching staff or search the free agent market.
Hopkins was a favorite in the 2020 fourth round of Purdue after being selected for the All-Big Ten first team in his first year. He could return on October 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
Kaze is in injured reserve, so he was set to miss the Steelers’ next two games anyway. Now, he won’t be active until his Week 6 match with the Tampa Bay Pirates. He won’t get paid for the three games he missed.
