PHILADELPHIA — Rookie linebacker Sean Weatherspoon has been declared inactive for today’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
Weatherspoon missed the San Francisco game with ankle injury he suffered against the New Orleans Saints.
This will be the second game he’s missed. He suffered the injury last week in the third quarter against Cleveland.
Stephen Nicholas has been announced as the starter.
Also, inactive for the Falcons are cornerback Dominique Franks, running back Gartrell Johnson III, tackle Garrett Reynolds, guard Mike Johnson and defensive end Lawrence Sidbury and defensive tackle Trey Lewis.
John Parker Wilson was designated as the third quarterback for the Falcons
For the Eagles, Michael Vick was declared as their third quarterback. Vick was limited in practice on Friday, before Philadelphia coach Andy Reid announced that Kevin Kolb would be the starter. Rookie Mike Kafka, from Northwestern, will serve as the No. 2 quarterback.
“I’m not going to put him out there if he’s sore and all of that,”
Reid said. “I wouldn’t do that with any player, let along with Michael.”
