ATLANTA (AP) — Falcons coach Dan Quinn confirmed on Monday that defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman is facing domestic violence charges resulting from an incident about six months ago.
Hageman, a second-round draft choice in 2014, was held out of Sunday's season-opening 31-24 loss to Tampa Bay. Quinn said Monday the pending misdemeanor charges in DeKalb County, Georgia were not the reason Hageman was not in uniform.
Hageman played in all 16 games, including 12 starts, in 2015.
