AP
Falcons backup offensive lineman Joe Hawley has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Falcons announced the suspension on the team’s official website.

Hawley, who has played in six games with no starts this year, will be eligible to return on Dec. 17, the day after the Falcons’ game against the Giants.

This is where the cynical start the Adderall countdown, in 3, . . . 2, . . . 1.

UPDATE: 5:16 p.m. ET: Hawley’s agent, Kevin Omell, has issued a statement, via the NFLPA. It reads, as follows:

“In September, Joe Hawley made a mistake by taking an Adderall pill. He did not file the paperwork to apply for an exemption for this medication, and now understands that the NFL/NFLPA drug policies have strict rules.

He is sincerely sorry to his teammates, coaches and Falcons fans for the consequences of this oversight. Joe will work diligently every day of this suspension to stay in top football shape and be ready to help the team continue the success they’ve achieved thus far this season. He has chosen to be immediately accountable for the situation which is why he will not exercise his appeal rights and will begin serving the suspension immediately.”

Shouldn't be a major issue. Konz plays emergency center, Johnson moves back to guard, and Holmes might finally become active.

But knowing the Falcons, wouldn't be surprised to see if Tyler Horn is back on the p-squad or added to the roster.

Why would he take a single Adderol pill and why wouldn't he think it would be traced? Basically an amphetamine and used for ADD, right?

I think we are really going to miss his route running and his ability to catch the football. That's another guy opposing defenses no longer have to account for. Not to mention opposing dc's don't have to spend extra time figuring out "how do we stop joe Hawley?!?"
I think we will see a totally different offense going forward.

Maybe the Aderall caused him to get jittery, explaining his hands of stone.

I was hoping he was on steriods for the simple fact that he used to get manhandled last year. :lol:

Hawley should ask for his money back. I certainly didn't see any "physical enhancement ". :lol:
