LB Sean Weatherspoon Misses Practice with a Head Injury

LB Sean Weatherspoon, the team’s second-leading tackler, missed Wednesday’s practice with a head injury. Weatherspoon’s injury was not announced during Sunday’s game.

When asked if Weatherspoon was being monitored under the NFL’s concussion protocol, coach Mike Smith said, “He will be back out tomorrow. In terms of your question, we anticipate he’ll back out tomorrow.”

If Witherspoon is in the concussion protocol and is not cleared in time for Sunday’s game, the Falcons would be awfully thin at linebacker. SLB Stephen Nicholas (toe) is already doubtful and Mike Peterson (torn triceps) was placed on injured reserve before the final regular-season game.
