Weatherspoon Comfortable in Return

With Doug Martin as the next running back up, the Falcons defense knew it had to have Sean Weatherspoon back from an ankle injury that kept him out the previous three games.

After declaring himself ready on Wednesday, Spoon came into Raymond James Stadium fired up and high on the emotions of being back on the field.

Clearly a shot in the arm for a Falcons run defense that has struggled at times, Spoon helped lead an effort that kept Martin to just 50 yards on 21 carries, his second lowest output of his impressive rookie year.

What’s more: Spoon is back and feeling good.

“Yeah, I felt good. I feel like I’m there,” Weatherspoon said. “I just have to keep working. Every now and then I’d step in the ground a little bit awkward but, I felt good.”
