Babineaux Suspended One Game

Alex Marvel of Fox Sports reported Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux has been suspended for one game stemming from his marijuana possession arrest in 2009.

Look for Corey Peters or Vance Walker to start in his place at Pittsburgh. If Peria Jerry’s knee injury isn’t fully healed we could see both Peters and Walker inside with John Abraham and Kroy Biermann or Lawrence Sidbury on the outside.

The positive spin on this is we will get to see what the youngster Peters can do against a Steeler team that will have to run the ball without Ben Roethlisberger. Babineaux was our best defensive lineman last season but the early playing time could benefit the rotation late in the season.
