Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam was suspended Friday for one game for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Elam will serve it Sunday in a game he wasn’t going to play in anyway because he has been on injured reserve for a season-ending biceps injury since August.
@Ravens: Safety Matt Elam has been suspended without pay for one game for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Elam has been a huge bust since entering the NFL. Between injuries and this suspension I would not be surprised if the Ravens eventually split ties.
