                 === Falcons LB Weatherspoon tears Achilles ===
 
 Flowery  Branch,  GA (SportsNetwork.com)  -  Atlanta  Falcons linebacker  Sean
 Weatherspoon  will miss  the entire  2014  season after  tearing his  Achilles
 tendon during a Tuesday workout.
 
 Weatherspoon  sustained  the  injury  while  rehabbing  a  knee  problem  that
 required  surgery and  limited the 2010 first-round pick to just seven games a
 season ago.
 
 "During  Sean's run today with our medical staff, he suffered an injury," said
 Falcons  head coach Mike Smith in a statement. "We sent Sean to the doctor for
 some  additional  testing and evaluation  and unfortunately the results showed
 that  he ruptured his Achilles tendon. Sean had been working extremely hard to
 get back on the field, but regrettably he will miss the entire 2014 season.
 
 "He  will have a procedure done in the near future and we expect him to make a
 full recovery."
 
 Weatherspoon  has started 36 games over the last three seasons, but has missed
 12  due to  injury over  the  last two.  The 26-year-old  has accumulated  290
 tackles,  eight sacks, two interceptions and 15 passes defensed over 47 career
 contests, all with the Falcons.
