The Falcons were thin at linebacker anyway because of injury, and they just got thinner.

According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon said he suffered a torn Achilles yesterday, which would obviously end his season.

Weatherspoon also tore an Achilles in 2014, and didn’t look like himself last year with the Cardinals.

But the Falcons needed the help, with De’Vondre Campbell (ankle) and Paul Worrilow (groin) also out with injuries.

The 28-year-old Weatherspoon was the Falcons’ first-round pick in 2010.
