ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
Collins, a second-round pick from Louisiana State in 2015, started two of his 16 games as a rookie and had 12 tackles.
Collins is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said in a statement released by the team the Falcons are disappointed in the suspension. He says he has talked with Collins ''and I have no doubt this will be something that he will learn from.''
