Broncos Vs. Falcons Injury Report: Sean Weatherspoon, Tyson Clabo Questionable For Monday

The Atlanta Falcons listed WR Roddy White, OT Tyson Clabo and LB Sean Weatherspoon as questionable for Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos, and The Falcoholic has the rundown on the status of three key Atlanta starters.

Though Atlanta listed White as questionable in this week's injury report, The Falcoholic's Dave Choate says White is likely to play Monday after he was able to complete a full practice Friday. That means Matt Ryan will have his full complement of weapons to work with, though it will be interesting to see if White is still limited at all with a lingering groin injury.

The news on Clabo and Weatherspoon, however, is not quite as positive, Choate says:

Clabo, meanwhile, did not practice on Thursday and only had limited practices on both Friday and Saturday. If the Falcons are without Clabo, that makes the Broncos' pas rush even more effective. Mike Johnson would start if he could not, and however you feel about Johnson, the Falcons would have a much harder time in both the ground and aerial game without Clabo. Downgrade Turner in particular if Tyson can't go.

Sean Weatherspoon was a limited practice on all three days. He's truly questionable to go, probably a 50/50 chance, and without him the Falcons are obviously a little less athletic and dynamic on defense. When you consider that Robert James or Mike Peterson may be his replacement, and that's a huge downgrade in every sense of the word. He's a risky IDP play.
