John Abraham ready to practice Wednesday

It appeared that Falcons coach Mike Smith’s decision to play his starters in the regular season finale was a disaster, when cornerback Dunta Robinson and defensive end John Abraham were injured in a meaningless game.

But they appear to have dodged a bullet, as Robinson was cleared last week after his concussion, and Smith announced that Abraham will practice Wednesday, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.

Abraham’s had a week to rest the ankle he injured against the Buccaneers, and if he’s ready to work early this week, it’s a good sign for his availability for Sunday’s game with the Seahawks.

    Yeah, but the bigger story is how the Falcons tend to rest their offense during the playoffs.

    He should take the week off, their season will be over by next week, might as well get a head start.
