05:23 PM ET 10.29 | Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Witherspoon was carted off the field with an ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but reports are that the injury is minor and could see him return to action without missing significant playing time. Weatherspoon's injury was termed a low ankle sprain. The 2010 first-round pick was reportedly not in severe pain after the game, and head coach Mike Smith opted not to add details on Weatherspoon's status in his Monday press conference, which he typically does for serious injuries. As such, its believed that the injury is not considered major by Smith or the team.

It hurt enough that they used the garbage cart to haul him off Sunday.
