Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam has been suspended one game without pay for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the team announced.

Elam is currently on injured reserve after sustaining a season-ending biceps injury in August, but as ProFootballTalk notes, he will still lose a week’s pay of roughly $60,000.

“We have been aware of the situation for a while. Matt has been in our building, rehabbing his injury on a regular basis, and he will continue to do so,” the team said in a statement.

A first-round draft choice of the Ravens in 2013, Elam recorded 50 tackles last season. He had not missed a game in his first two seasons prior to the biceps injury.
