The Green Bay Packers really did not need to hear any more bad news this season but they certainly got it.
The Green Bay Packers announced on Friday that their rookie guard Sean Rhyan has been suspended for the next six games without pay due to a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy.
The penalty means the third-round draft pick out of UCLA must sit out the rest of the regular season.
The three-year starter for UCLA was selected by the Packers with a third-round pick in the 2022 draft. This won’t hurt the team much as Rhyan has participated in only one play this season and for no offensive snaps.
He was active and appeared in one special-teams play on Nov. 6 in a 15-9 loss at Detroit. He dressed but didn’t play in five games and was ruled inactive for five other games.
Rhyan is just the latest in a series of Packers’ third-round picks that have encountered issues on or off the field for this bad 2022 campaign.
The Packers are just 4-7.
