The Atlanta Falcons placed standout linebacker Sean Weatherspoon on injured reserve-designated to return.

Weatherspoon sprained his foot against the St. Louis Rams.

Weatherspoon is an integral part of the Falcons' defense.

The Falcons placed defensive end Kroy Biermann on injured reserve Monday and have now lost another defender.
