Sean Weatherspoon Out, Julio Jones In Versus Cardinals

Kevin C. Cox

'Spoon can't eat.

The Falcons will be missing their best linebacker for the third week in a row, which is a major bummer. Julio Jones will play, which is the exact opposite of a bummer.

Jones will start but may be slightly limited against a tough Arizona pass defense, which means the Falcons should mix in healthy doses of Harry Douglas and Drew Davis.

With 'Spoon out, the Falcons will trot out Akeem Dent on nickel packages for the third straight week. Dent is becoming a player, though he's still not the best in the NFL against the pass. Given the relative ineptitude of the Cardinals offense, this is probably the best week for 'Spoon to miss. Hope he's back soon, however.

Here's the full list of inactives for today's game.

INACTIVES

OLB Sean Weatherspoon
QB Dominique Davis
