Weatherspoon leaning on ‘legal’ health supplements

FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon hopes that his rash of injuries since the 2012 season, are a thing of the past.

Last season, while with the Arizona Cardinals, he battled a hamstring injury after coming off knee and Achilles surgeries.

“I feel like, right now, I’m getting my feet back under me,” Weatherspoon said on Wednesday. “I feel good. I’m moving pretty well. I’m looking forward to just doing whatever I can to help the team and hopefully we can get that feeling back in the Dome.”

Weatherspoon pronounced his health to be “A-1.”

“I had a chance last year to go out there and get the cobwebs out,” Weatherspoon said. “Actually, I see it as a blessing that I wasn’t pushed to go back out there and be the guy on every down and that helped me get back into the swing of things. The way that I’m moving now is light years away from the way I was moving coming of the Achilles when I got to Arizona.

“They were pretty pleased with what I was doing in OTAs coming into camp. They were pleased with me as well. I pulled a hamstring. That’s always going to be tough. Soft tissue, you have to always maintain that.”

Weatherspoon has embrace health supplements.

“They call me the supplement man around here,” Weatherspoon said. “I’m always pouring something in a bottle, but I tell you what, it’s legal.”
