PLAYERS: Austin Pettis
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
The NFL has suspended rookie WR Austin Pettis for the next four games for testing positive for a performance enhancing drug.  Pettis played in 12 games (3 starts) for the Rams this year and he caught 27 passes for 256 yards (9.5 avg).  He also returned 15 punts for 139 yards (9.3 avg) and he returned 3 kickoffs for 62 yards (20.7 avg) this year.  This is a disappointing end to a disappointing year for Austin Pettis as the Rams had high hopes for him after picking him in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft last April.
