Rams lose only backup tight end, Brycen Hopkins, to suspension

Rams tight end Brycen Hopkins was suspended for three games for violating the NFL’s substances of abuse policy, the league said Wednesday in a statement distributed by the Rams.

Hopkins, a third-year pro, can’t return to the active roster until after the Rams’ Oct. 9 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Hopkins, a Purdue fourth-round draft pick in 2020, was inactive for most of his first two seasons but came out with a dynamic performance in the Super Bowl. His development meant the Rams carried only two tight ends in their 53-man roster, veterans Tyler Higbee and Hopkins.

Hopkins played four plays on offense in a season-opening loss to the Buffalo Bills and four plays in last Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons. He wasn’t aimed in the passing game.

Jared Pinkney and Roger Carter Jr. are tight ends on the practice team.

The Rams (1-2) play the Arizona Cardinals (1-1) at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday.
