Forget conspiracy theory on Weatherspoon


I know there has been some speculation the ankle injury to Atlanta rookie linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is more serious than the Atlanta Falcons are saying.

Well, I don’t think that’s the case. Weatherspoon missed Sunday’s game. But he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. The Thursday injury report just came out and the Falcons said Weatherspoon practiced fully. Sounds like a pretty strong indication he’ll play Sunday, unless there is a setback.

Linebacker Curtis Lofton (knee) also participated fully in Thursday’s practice. Receiver Michael Jenkins (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis.
