Spoon Out 8 Weeks, S-Jax a couple weeks?

Well... The Falcons are having about as bad a start health wise as I can ever remember over recent years.

The Atlanta Falcons' defense likely can't take too many more hits.

For the second day in a row, that group suffered a major loss. After placing defensive end Kroy Biermann on season-ending injured reserve, the club had to put linebacker Sean Weatherspoon on the short-term version.

The fact that Weatherspoon can return is the good news, but it won't be at least until the final month of the season if he does. Weatherspoon left Sunday’s victory over the Rams with a foot sprain, but it was not expected to be a serious injury at first. He's one of the best playmakers on a defense that lacks depth and star power.

And it's not just the defense that's hurting. Receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White are playing through injuries, and now comes word that running back Steven Jackson could miss a few weeks.
Fear the BEARD!
