St. Louis Rams' RB Trey Watts Suspended For Violating NFL Policy

Posted On: November 05, 2015

With football season in full swing and teams putting their best foot forward leading to the Superbowl, St. Louis Rams' running back Trey Watts will be slowing it down a little, due to an indefinite suspension.

After being reviewed by the NFL board for violating one of their policies, Watts was reprimanded for substance abuse and suspended indefinitely by the league. The terms of his suspension consist of without pay. Ironically, Trey came off a four game suspension for the same thing and got suspended again in four weeks. (Gotta leave those drugs alone, bruh!)

But anyhow, Jeff Fisher, the Rams coach is not too thrilled about the suspension (why would he be) and made a statement about Trey Watts being more responsible with his personal activities, in knowing the NFL's policy and highlighting his recent comeback was a good one. Also stating, his approval with the NFL's decision to suspend Watts.

"It's really unfortunate for Trey," Fisher expressed.

"We have a program, and the players have to comply with the program. Trey had an issue that cost him the first four games of the regular season, and then when Trey came back, Trey was good. The setback was something that took place before he was suspended. So it ends up being another positive, and the league requires him to sit. So unfortunately we'll lose him for the remainder of the season."

The Royals catcher who contributed in their victory, Salvador Perez was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2015 World Series. Perez also did the footwork on the field by taking a couple bases and scoring three homeruns, went to bat and hit .364/.391/.455 and just an overall baseball player who can multi-task different positions.

Royals manager Ned Yost made a statement to sports news reporters, highlighting Salvador Perez as an asset to the team and KC's journey in winning the 2015 World Series.

"He just had a phenomenal series," said expressed Yost.

"I think if I had one regret during the whole playoffs, (it) was I had to pinch run for Sal there in that inning. But it opened up the door for us to score five. I really wish that Sal could have been out there to jump in (closer Wade Davis') arms when we got the final out."
