Description: Atlanta linebacker Sean Weatherspoon has suffered a ruptured Achilles. He'll miss the entire 2014 season. SOURCE: Vaughn McClure, ESPN
Insight: Knee and foot injuries limited Weatherspoon to seven games last season. Even when healthy, which hasn't been the case in quite some time, Weatherspoon has had a tendency to miss tackles. This injury certainly won't help him going into free agency next season.

Description: Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon suffered a foot sprain, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1.
Insight: It's not believed to be serious, but you always have to worry with this type of injury. Weatherspoon is questionable for the Week 3 matchup with 2-0 Miami.

Description: The Falcons have LB Sean Weatherspoon (knee) listed as the starting strong-side linebacker over LB Stephen Nicholas on their latest depth chart. SOURCE: ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION
Insight: Weatherspoon was looking really good the first quarter of the season, racking up 29 total tackles and a sack in the first five games. He could go back to an LB3, with some upside to go to an LB2. The team may initially limit his snaps until he gets comfortable after having missed the last four games.

Description: The Falcons started rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon at strong-side linebacker ahead of Stephen Nicholas against the Patriots Thursday night. SOURCE: ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION
Insight: Weatherspoon played weak side in place of Mike Peterson (calf) last weekend. It's good that the team is giving Weatherspoon a chance to move around, but we would much rather see him eventually start at weak side for IDP purposes.

Description: The Falcons will start first-round rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon on the weak side in Friday's preseason opener. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Mike Peterson is still nursing a calf injury, so the move will be temporary. Dynasty owners should continue to stash Weatherspoon away for now, but he will be eased into the defense this year.
 
8/5/2010 9:22:00 PM
Description: Sean Weatherspoon doesn't mind the blazing temperatures of training camp. The Atlanta Falcons' rookie linebacker can't stop smiling. He was the last player to stop signing autographs for clamoring fans on Thursday. SOURCE: YAHOO! SPORTS - NFL - ATLANTA FALCONS NEWS
Insight: He'll battle Mike Peterson for the weak-side linebacker, but Peterson still might have a hold on the starting spot. Weatherspoon is still worth the gamble and stashing, especially in keeper/dynasty leagues, as Mike Peterson's injury history is not in his favor. Weatherspoon will probably be in on special teams to begin the season, but could be an every-down WLB before too long.
 
7/29/2010 4:27:00 PM
Description: The Falcons and first-round rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon have agreed to a five-year contract. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Weatherspoon will start off playing special teams and in nickel packages, but he is the heir apparent to Mike Peterson at the weak side.
 
7/27/2010 8:37:00 PM
Description: The Falcons are intensifying their efforts to get Sean Weatherspoon , their first-round draft pick, signed and into training camp on time, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff . SOURCE: ATLANTA FALCONS NEWS
Insight: Weatherspoon may not carry too much fantasy value unless Mike Peterson gets hurt and if we were betting, we'd put some money down that he does. He'll come in on certain situations and might play some special teams. His time is more likely to come in 2011.
