The Falcons just sent out a short press release in which they acknowledge a suspension for defensive tackle Grady Jackson remains a possibility. Six other players around the league were suspended Tuesday for using a banned substance.

The Falcons said Jackson's situation remains in the appeal process.

"NFL Chief Counsel Jeff Pash notified our club today that a decision regarding (Jackson's) suspension appeal has been deferred pending additional information,'' the Falcons said in the statement. "We are unable to comment further on any aspect of the NFL's Drug Policy.''
