FLOWERY BRANCH — Jalen Collins of the Atlanta Falcons has been suspended without pay for the first 10 games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
Collins will be eligible to return to the Falcons’ active roster on Tuesday, November 21 following the team’s November 20 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Collins is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
“We are extremely disappointed that for the second straight season we are dealing with a suspension for Jalen," Falcons' GM Thomas Dimitroff said. "Such are the consequences when certain choices are made. Our decisions going forward will be based on what Dan and I feel is best for the team.”
