The NFL announced Monday that Chargers S Roderic Teamer has been suspended for the first four games of the 2020 regular season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
Teamer can participate in all preseason practices and games and is then eligible to return to the Chargers on Oct. 5.
The Chargers will likely place him on the suspended list leading up to the regular season.
Teamer, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Tulane back in 2019. He later signed a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Chargers and was able to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason.
In 2019, Teamer appeared in seven games for the Chargers and recorded 40 tackles, one sack, an interception and two passes defended.
