Rams Left Guard Rokevious Watkins Suspended One Game

Dilip Vishwanat

Rokevious Watkins is in the news for the wrong reasons. Will it impact him fighting for the starting spot?

It's been reported that the St. Louis Rams' potentially starting left guard Rokevious Watkins will be suspended for the week 1 contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

Watkins was drafted in the 5th round by the Rams last year, and he became a starter week one. However he suffered an ankle injury during the first game and has been working to improve during the off-season. Watkins is only suspended for one game, so this suspension shouldn't hurt his chances of being the starter at left guard.

The players that Watkins are competing against for the left guard position are Shelley Smith, Chris Williams and the Rams' recent 4th round pick Barrett Jones.
