Falcons WLB Sean Weatherspoon underwent a knee scope this offseason.

Weatherspoon missed three games last year, but that was due to an ankle sprain. This sounds like a mere clean-out procedure, meaning he'll certainly be ready for training camp. Weatherspoon is an excellent bet to push for 100 tackles a chip in a handful of sacks once again this season.
Falcons OLB Stephen Nicholas underwent sports hernia surgery this offseason.

Nicholas is coming off a 2012 campaign that saw him post a career-high 97 tackles while playing in all 16 games. Sports hernia surgeries typically come with a 6-8 week timetable. Nicholas is expected back for late-June minicamps.
