Falcons RB Jason Snelling won't play Sunday following marijuana arrest

Falcons running back Jason Snelling @JSNELZ44 missed practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury. He missed practice again on Friday for something completely different, and it will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Snelling was arrested early Friday morning and charged with possession of marijuana – less than one ounce, possession of drug related materials, expired or no driver's license, failure to maintain lane, failure to maintain insurance, improper use of dealer license plate and no registration.
Head coach Mike Smith said Saturday that Snelling will take some time off to handle his situation and not play this weekend.

Fantasy Analysis:

Smooth. Details of the arrest can be read in the link below. It'll cause a couple of eye rolls. Snelling has minimal fantasy value with Steven Jackson @sj39 back and should be dropped in all leagues.

"possession of marijuana – less than one ounce, possession of drug related materials, expired or no driver's license, failure to maintain lane, failure to maintain insurance, improper use of dealer license plate and no registration"... holy cow! What DIDN'T they charge him with? Oh yeah... being black. Seriously... with all those charges, it sounds to me that a redneck cop nabbed him. I'm just sayin' as someone who used to live in that area and know that young black men get hassled by the cops there more than most places.

Sam? Are you saying he had no license because he was black? No insurance because he was black? No registration because he was black? I understand that young black men get hassled by cops, but so do young white men (such as myself) when I was a younger man. Sorry, but this story is not about race.
