Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was carted off the field during Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with an apparent ankle injury. Since then, head coach Mike Smith has revealed it’s only a low ankle sprain.
As D. Orlando Ledbetter points out, Smith never announces when a player suffers a severe injury; he talked about Weatherspoon’s injury, so it’s clearly not too terrible. Luckily enough, it wasn’t the dreaded high ankle sprain that keeps athletes out for several weeks.
‘Spoon missing any time would be dreadful for the Falcons, but I’m nearly positive he’ll be available for the Sunday night game against the Dallas Cowboys.
