Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon wills this week’s preseason opener after suffering a dislocated finger.
Yesterday in practice, Sean Weatherspoon injured his left hand,” Falcons head coach Mike Smith said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It was an open dislocation. We are going to keep him out and the time frame is going to be based on how quick the wound heals. It’s a matter of the wound healing.”
Wide receiver Julio Jones will also be held out due to tightness in his hamstrings.
“Julio Jones has had tightness in his hamstrings and we will keep him out of the game on Thursday,” Smith said. “It is a precautionary move.”
