Rams rookie linebacker suspended for steroid abuse

Saturday, September 27, 2003

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams rookie linebacker Scott Shanle was suspended for four games without pay Friday for violating the NFL's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Shanle, a seventh-round draft pick from Nebraska, is eligible to return to the active roster after the Oct. 26 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Shanle played on special teams the first two games. He missed last week's game because of a hamstring injury and had been ruled out for Sunday's game against Arizona.
