Falcons LB Weatherspoon has an ankle issue

The status of Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers is up in the air as he is dealing with a right ankle injury.

Weatherspoon left the field on a cart in last Sunday’s overtime victory at New Orleans but that was because he had cramps. As Falcons coach Mike Smith explained, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a day after the game the ankle issue emerged.

“We’re hoping that we’ll get him back out (today) and get him some reps,” Smith said.

The rookie first-round draft pick from Missouri is a big part of the unit already. He is tied with middle linebacker Curtis Lofton for the team lead in tackles.
