Coach Jeff Fisher said he was “very very disappointed” in the “choices and decisions” made by suspended linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar. Dunbar the Rams’ second-leading tackler in 2012 was suspended for the first four games of this season for violation of NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Fisher said Dunbar’s actions were selfish and hurt the team. Dunbar’s situation and overall player responsibility in such matters were discussed at a team meeting Wednesday night. As expected Fisher said that veteran linebacker Will Witherspoon would start in Dunbar’s place. Fisher also said a decision would be made on who the starter is once Dunbar returns. In other words Fisher would not guarantee that the starting job would be Dunbar’s once he returned to action. Fisher said the team knew Dunbar had tested positive when the team signed Witherspoon in July but said the team was looking for linebacker help anyway. Fisher said it’s possible the team will look for more help at linebacker as the regular season approaches.
