Analysis: Weatherspoon sustained a foot injury in Sunday's game and didn't return. While the team didn't specify the specifics of his injury, it was clearly serious with the Falcons opting to use a special one-time-only provision of injured reserve, which allows the linebacker o return to practice in six weeks and rejoin the roster in Week 11.
