The Atlanta Falcons got some much-needed depth back on their offensive line Monday afternoon.

The team announced that Joe Hawley has been put back on the active roster after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Falcons made room for Hawley by placing wide receiver Kevin Cone on injured reserve.

Prior to his suspension, Hawley was the top backup to center Todd McClure and guards Justin Blalock and Peter Konz. Hawley likely will step immediately back into that same role.
