FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Mark Duper Jersey . -- Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon ruptured his Achilles tendon on Tuesday and will miss the 2014 season. Weatherspoon suffered the injury while running under the supervision of the teams medical staff. Weatherspoon had been held out of the organized team activities as he was continuing his recovery from a foot injury that limited him to only seven games in 2013. The loss of Weatherspoon, the teams first-round pick from Missouri in 2010, is a blow to the Falcons, whose disappointing 4-12 finish in 2013 was marked by a string of injuries. Weatherspoon has eight sacks and two interceptions in his first four seasons. Weatherspoon has managed to play a full 16 games in only one season, 2011, when he had 80 tackles and a career-high four sacks. Coach Mike Smith said in a statement released by the team on Tuesday night Weatherspoon is expected to make a full recovery following surgery. "During Seans run today with our medical staff, he suffered an injury," Smith said. "We sent Sean to the doctor for some additional testing and evaluation and unfortunately the results showed that he ruptured his Achilles tendon. "Sean had been working extremely hard to get back on the field, but regrettably he will miss the entire 2014 season. He will have a procedure done in the near future and we expect him to make a full recovery." Weatherspoons 2013 injury forced the Falcons to rely on two undrafted rookies, Joplo Bartu and Paul Worrilow. Worrilow led the team in tackles and Bartu was third. Before Weatherspoons latest injury was disclosed, Smith said Tuesday that Bartu and Worrilow have matured in the off-season. "Two guys who ended up playing a bunch of snaps for us last year have improved and matured," Smith said, referring to Worrilow and Bartu. "If you would have told me at this time last year that one was going to be our leading tackler and the other was going to play 70 per cent of the snaps I would have said I dont think so. "They are a much more mature group. We went through some growing pains with them last year that are going to pay dividends moving forward." The Falcons added four linebackers late in this years NFL draft. Notre Dames Prince Shembo was selected late in the fourth round. Syracuses Marquis Spruill was the teams fifth-round pick. Connecticuts Yawin Smallwood and South Dakotas Tyler Starr were seventh-round picks. Mike Pouncey Jersey .J. -- Kevin Gilbride retired Thursday as offensive co-ordinator for the New York Giants. William Hayes Jersey .Fiji striker Roy Krishna scored in the 14th minute to give Wellington its fourth win, along with a draw, from its past five matches, putting the Phoenix fourth but only a point behind third-placed Adelaide.OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Time for the Baltimore Ravens to start searching for a new offensive co-ordinator — again.The Ravens thought they might be able to avoid this annual exercise when Gary Kubiak declared last week that he would return for a second season. That, however, was before the Denver Broncos head coaching job became vacant.The vacancy that was created when the Broncos and coach John Fox parted ways put in motion a chain of events that ultimately sent Kubiak to Denver (his hiring was announced Monday) and left the Ravens looking for an offensive co-ordinator for the fourth time in four seasons.Potential replacements include former Broncos offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase and former Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman.Experience at the position is helpful, but not necessarily a requirement. When Ravens coach John Harbaugh dismissed offensive co-ordinator Cam Cameron in December 2012, he gave the job to Jim Caldwell, who had never worked at the position before.Two months later, the Ravens put up 34 points in a Super Bowl victory over San Francisco.Caldwell stayed at the post in 2013 before accepting the job as coach of the Detroit Lions. That opened the door for Kubiak, who put together the most prolific offence in franchise history.Baltimore set team marks in points (409) and yards (5,838) in 2014. In addition, quarterback Joe Flaacco threw for a career-high 3,986 yards and 27 touchdowns while being sacked only 19 times compared to 48 in 2014. Kenny Stills Jersey. After the Ravens fell to New England in the second round of the playoffs, there was hope the offence would be even better in its second season under Kubiak. He seemed to think that way, too, opting to return rather than interview for other coaching jobs.One day after the 35-31 defeat in New England, Kubiak said in statement: This is a special organization and we, like Coach Harbaugh says, are building something great. I want to be a part of that and contribute in whatever ways I can.Now hes headed elsewhere. Although Kubiaks departure comes just one week after he said he would stay put, at least one of the Ravens expressed no hard feelings.How can you be mad at a guy did his job and was rewarded with dream opportunity that WASNT available when he said he was staying? wide receiver Torrey Smith wrote on Twitter.Kubiak probably wont be going alone. It appears likely that quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison and tight ends coach Brian Pariani will also end up in Denver, leaving Harbaugh to fill those voids along with finding a replacement for secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo, who left to become defensive co-ordinator of the New York Giants.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
