The Atlanta Falcons defense will get a boost this Sunday with the activation of linebacker and defensive captain Sean Weatherspoon on Tuesday. Linebacker Thomas Howard, who was signed on October 22, was released.

Weatherspoon was placed on injured reserve with designation to return in Week 2. Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers marks the first game he’s eligible to return to the field.
