Weatherspoon’s Sunday status up in the air due to ankle injury

Falcons rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon’s status is up in the air due to an ankle injury:

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.
