Babineaux suspended for opener

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux will be suspended without pay for the Falcons 2010 season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, stemming from his December 2009 arrest for marijuana possession. In July, Babineaux pleaded no contest to misdemeanor possession charge and received a year’s probation and a $1500 fine.

Babineaux joins guard Quinn Ojinnaka and linebacker Robert James as Falcons that will sit out at least one game this upcoming season.
