Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is expected to return to practice on Wednesday. Will he be able to play in Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who has missed the last three games with a twisted ankle, is expected to return to practice on Wednesday. While he would not say if he would be ready to play in Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Weatherspoon did appear excited to be practicing again, arriving at the team's facility in Flowery Branch, Ga. wearing a work jump suit:

"This is just my coming back to work suit," said Weatherspoon, who missed the last three games. "That's all that it is. I got a chance to get out there with the guys a little bit for the walk-through. I'm feeling pretty good, so I'm looking forward to practice."

Weatherspoon injured his ankle in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 28 when attempting to tackle running back LeSean McCoy. Before the injury, Weatherspoon had recorded 52 total tackles, 40 of them solo, along with three sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble and fumble recovery.

More updates on Weatherspoon's condition will be given out after practice by head coach Mike Smith. Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be at Raymond James Stadium with kickoff at 1 p.m. with the television broadcast on Fox.
