Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is out for the year after tearing his Achilles.
He was already working back from a knee injury that ended his season last year in Week 15.
It’s a big blow for the Falcons’ linebacking corps.
Weatherspoon was in the last year of his rookie contract. Unfortunately, I can’t see the Falcons bringing him back unless it’s on a incentive-laden, prove-it deal.
Hopefully the linebacker has a speedy recovery and returns to the field soon.
