The league suspended the Falcons cornerback 10 games following a second violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. This is his second infraction, hence the 10 game suspension. "Our decisions going forward will be based on what Dan and I feel is best for the team", Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement. Collins can continue to participate in the preseason and will be eligible to return to the active roster in the regular season on following the November 21 game. Collins told media earlier in the week he had no issues working with the third-team. Collins has been taking reps against quarterback Matt Simms and Alek Torgersen and receivers like Nick Williams, Josh Magee, Reggie Davis and players lower on the Falcons' depth chart.

Collins violated the NFL's PED policy last season and was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season.Last season, Collins recorded 31 tackles and two interceptions.

The Falcons selected Collins in the second round, 42nd overall, of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Collins, 24, saw increased playing time in his second season playing in eight games for the Falcons last season, playing in six of them.
