Abraham ankle is expected to be fine

It looked bad when it happened.  The end result could be a lot better.

Per multiple sources, the initial prognosis on the ankle of Falcons defensive end isn’t negative.

He’ll have an MRI on Monday.  One source said Abraham will be fine.  Another said it’s believed for now that he has dodged a serious injury.

Either way, he has either 13 or 14 days to recover; the Falcons have a bye, and won’t take the field again until the divisional round.

    Loosing Abraham for the playoffs would be devastating to the Falcons. Glad he’s ok.

    Imagine that a Steelers fan spouting off comments about how great they ONCE were. Thought they were just attacking their division foes with that garbage apparently they’re just going after anyone that will listen. Crybabies. It just makes me smile.

    Falcons have a tendency to soft-pedal injury reports; remember when Sean Meriweather turned his ankle, they said it was not serious and I think he missed 3 games….while there will likely be a lot of conversation about why he was in this game in the 4th quarter in the first place, the first round bye the team earned will sure come in handy now, as Abraham is perhaps their best player on defense…..
