St. Louis Rams tight end Brody Eldridge was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances. The suspension was first reported by The Sports Xchange's Howard Balzer, and has since been confirmed by multiple media outlets. Eldridge can participate in offseason and preseason practices and games. He can be added to the Rams' active roster on the Monday following the September 30 game against Seattle. Eldridge was acquired in the offseason after being waived by the Indianapolis Colts. He played in 13 games for the Colts last season, including eight starts, and had nine receptions.
