Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Rams re­ceiver Mike Thomas has been sus­pended for the first four games of the 2017 sea­son, the NFL an­nounced Fri­day af­ter­noon. Thomas will be sus­pended with­out pay “for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL pol­icy on per­for­mance en­hanc­ing sub­stances.” The league did not give specifics on Thomas’ al­leged vi­o­la­tion, but the NFL’s drug pol­icy calls for an au­to­matic four-game sus­pen­sion for a pos­i­tive test re­sult for a “stim­u­lant or an­abolic agent.” A sixth-round draft from of South­ern Mis­sis­sippi in 2016, Thomas ap­peared in 15 games last sea­son, caught three passes for 37 yards and also con­trib­uted on spe­cial teams. Thomas had drawn praise from new Coach Sean McVay through­out the Rams’ off­sea­son pro­gram for his on-field im­prove­ment, and Thomas is ex­pected to com­pete for a spot on the fi­nal 53-man ros­ter in train­ing camp.
