On May 31, 2013, the NFL announced that Pead will be suspended for the 2013 season opener for violating the substance abuse policy.[8]

During the Rams 2nd preseason game against the Green Bay Packers in 2014, Pead was injured on a kickoff return. Later, MRI's confirmed it was an ACL tear, and that he would miss the entire season. He was placed on IR a few days later.
