FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons are hurting at linebacker.
Deion Jones, De'Vondre Campbell and Paul Worrilow are all injured and will miss Sunday's game at Denver.
What's more, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was placed on injured reserve with an Achilles tendon injury from last week's win over Carolina. Weatherspoon started against Carolina because Campbell had an ankle injury.
LaRoy Reynolds is expected to join Philip Wheeler and Vic Beasley Jr. as starters. Reynolds has started only four games in five seasons with Jacksonville, Chicago and Atlanta. Newly signed veteran A.J. Hawk likely will be active as a backup.
Defensive end Brooks Reed may help at outside linebacker.
