Atlanta Falcons: Joe Hawley added to active roster




The Falcons today added reserve offensive lineman Joe Hawley to the active roster and placed wide receiver Kevin Cone on injured reserve.

Hawley returned to practice last week after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The Falcons had a week to decide whether to activate him.

Hawley’s agent, Kevin Omell, said Hawley tested positive for Adderall.

Hawley played in six games before his suspension. He started 12 games last season.

Cone played in 12 games this season, mostly on special teams.
