Little has gone right for the Green Bay Packers during the 2022 season. They currently sit at just 4-7 on the year ahead of a Sunday Night Football clash against the 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles.

Now it turns out one of their highly drafted rookies won't be joining them for this Week 12 showdown, or any of their upcoming games for that matter.

The NFL announced offensive lineman Sean Rhyan was handed a six-game suspension on Friday for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances policy. Due to the length of his punishment, Rhyan will now miss the rest of the regular season with only six contests remaining to close Green Bay's 2022-23 schedule.

This certainly is a sour note to finish Rhyan's rookie year, especially if the Packers don't make the playoffs. The UCLA product was selected with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, displaying confidence from the organization that he had potential to be a significant contributor.

However, Rhyan didn't make his NFL debut until Week 9, earning a healthy scratch designation for most of the year. When he did suit up against Detroit, Rhyan logged just one snap played on special teams.

It's been tough sledding for recent third-round picks by Green Bay, as wide receiver Amari Rodgers was waived last week after underperforming. Hopefully Rhyan can get back on track after he serves his time on the bench.
