Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon left Sunday’s Falcons-Redskins game midway through the third quarter with knee injury.
His return to the game is being characterized as questionable. He was replaced in the game by Stephen Nicholas in the Falcons base 4-3 defense. But Atlanta also brought out an extra defensive back through much of Weatherspoon’s absence, lineup up with two linebackers and five defensive backs.
Weatherspoon was able to leave the field under his own power and remains in uniform on the sideline.
