Atlanta Falcons linebacker Spencer Adkins is working as the strongside starter while Stephen Nicholas recovers from a toe injury that will keep him out of next week's mini-camp.
Weatherspoon starts at the weakside, a job he's held since his rookie year, but his responsibilities are greater now.
"It's important for our team and for the dynamics of our defense for leadership to come from that position," Smith said. "Sean is going to do a very good job with it this year."
