Jason Snelling will not play Sunday

The Atlanta Falcons have released a statement and indicated that running back Jason Snelling will not play during Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers after being arrested for possession of marijuana.

“We are disappointed in what has transpired over the last 48 hours concerning Jason Snelling. Any time one of our players is involved in an off-the-field incident we take it very seriously. Jason missed practice on Friday. After speaking with him yesterday, Jason has decided to take some personal time to deal with his situation and will miss tomorrow’s game. We anticipate him rejoining our team Monday morning.”
