Falcons | Kroy Biermann serving as versatile defender

Atlanta Falcons DE Kroy Biermann was the emergency linebacker the last three games with LB Sean Weatherspoon (illness) out of action. Biermann is playing a traditional defensive end in the 4-3 defense but when the team uses the 3-4 or 3-3-5 alignments, he's more of an outside 'backer. "We ask him to rush the passer," head coach Mike Smith said. "We ask him to cover backs. We ask him to cover tight ends. We ask him to close the middle of the field. You just don't know where he's going to be."
