NFL injury report: Falcons' Sean Weatherspoon, Vance Walker banged up in win over Eagles

Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon left Sunday's game against the Eagles, but the ankle sprain is reportedly "only minor."


Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon injured his ankle during Sunday's game against Philadelphia and was carted off the field.

Weatherspoon, 25, was set to undergo an MRI on Monday.

The third-year linebacker out of Missouri made six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's game before he was injured in the fourth quarter. He did not return to the game.

Of Weatherspoon's injury, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio said, "It's believed for now that he'll be OK, and that the ankle sprain is only minor."

Defensive tackle Vance Walker left with a head injury, but returned to action.

Defensive tackle Corey Peters, who was activated from the reserve/non-football list on Friday, made his season debut in the second quarter.

Garrett Reynolds missed Sunday's game because of a back injury. In his place, Atlanta started top draft pick Peter Konz at right guard.

The Falcons beat the Eagles, 30-17, and the win boosted Atlanta's record to 7-0. The Falcons will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football this week.
