Rams defensive back Tyrique McGhee has been suspended five games without pay by the NFL for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy. If he makes the 53-man roster this year, he’ll be forced to sit out the first five games of the season.

He is eligible to participate in all three preseason games and training camp, however.

McGhee signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia last year, but he was waived before final cuts in September. He was then added to the practice squad where he spent the rest of the year.

In November, he was hit with a two-game suspension for violating the same policy, which is why this ban is five games.

McGhee can play safety and cornerback, which are two spots the Rams need help at this offseason. This suspension is a major blow to his chances of making the team, though.
