Weddle had seven tackles and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Raiders. The 32-year-old Weddle played every defensive snap and was a force against both the pass and against the run. He recorded at least seven tackles for the second week in a row and is starting to get back to being one of the more reliable defensive backs in IDP formats.
Weddle netted his second interception of the season in Sunday's 26-9 loss to the Steelers and also chipped in a season-high eight tackles. The veteran safety made an excellent instinctual play to haul in a ball that popped out of Antonio Brown's grasp and into Weddle's hands for the pick. What's more, Weddle was more active as a tackler Sunday, doubling his previous season high. Weddle's production through the first quarter of the season is roughly in line with what he was able to do last year, a campaign in which he finished with 89 tackles and four interceptions.
Weddle (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports. The reason for Weddle's absence from practice Wednesday wasn't revealed, but it looks like it was just a minor illness. Expect the safety to be a full go for Baltimore this weekend.
Weddle (leg) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. Weddle appeared to hurt his left leg on one of the final plays of last Sunday's season opener. The severity of his injury remains unknown, however.
Weddle picked off his fourth pass of the season Monday and added a team-high 11 total tackles in the loss to the Patriots. Weddle made his presence felt once again Monday as he picked off his second pass in as many weeks. Moreover, he was strong in run support and racked up a season-high 11 tackles (six solo, five assisted), including one sack. According to Pro Football Focus, Weddle was Baltimore's highest graded defender in Monday's loss. He figures to be busy again Sunday when the Ravens face the Eagles' quick passing attack.
