Falcons LB James suspended

By Adam Schefter

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Robert James has been suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The suspension begins with Atlanta's first game, at Pittsburgh against the Steelers, and he'll be eligible to return after the Falcons' Oct. 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The 26-year-old James missed last season due to a concussion he suffered in training camp.
