Falcons' Weatherspoon carted off to locker room

Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was carted off to the locker room with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's game in Philadelphia. According to the team, his return is questionable.

Weatherspoon has been an anchor at linebacker for Mike Smith's defense, and his loss would be a huge blow. He injured the ankle on a run by the Eagles LeSean McCoy, and remained down on the field for a significant period of time as the Atlanta training staff tended to him.

As he does on almost a weekly basis for Atlanta, Weatherspoon was having a big impact against the Eagles. He had six tackles prior to leaving the game in the fourth. For the season, he leads the team with 46 total tackles, and has also added three sacks through the first six games.

Leading 30-17 in the fourth, the Falcons are trying to improve to a perfect 7-0. But the potential win may come with a huge cost to the defense if Weatherspoon is seriously injured.

Matt Ryan, Julio Jones expose Asomugha on early TD

The Atlanta Falcons are trying to remain the NFL's only undefeated team in Philadelphia this week, and Matt Ryan and his weapons on the outside have them off on the right foot. Atlanta leads the Eagles, 24-7, as Ryan hit Julio Jones over the top for a huge second-quarter 63-yard touchdown.

Ryan is 17 of 20 for 197 yards and three touchdowns so far, while Jones has three catches for 76 yards and the big score. Drew Davis was on the receiving end of Ryan's first touchdown, hauling in a fade to the back right corner and dragging his feet for the game's first touchdown. That set the tone for an unimpeded first half for the Falcons, who are facing an Eagles defense under new coordinator Todd Bowles.

On the 63-yarder, Jones beat Philly's Nnamdi Asomugha right off the line, bursting around the veteran corner on the outside and getting behind the defense down the left sideline. Ryan dropped it right in and Jones was off to the races. He avoided being pushed out of bounds inside the 10-yard line, and crossed the plane just inside the pylon for the touchdown. The quick-strike was a prompt response to to the Eagles first touchdown, pushing the Atlanta lead back to 14 points.

Ryan and the Falcons offense got one more shot in the final two minutes, and he worked the two-miunte drill to add three more before the half.
