As the Falcons prepare for the fourth playoff game of the Matt Ryan era (and, hopefully for them, the first postseason win), one of the team’s key defensive players is moving closer to being available for the game.
Defensive end John Abraham, who sprained an ankle during a meaningless Week 17 loss to the Bucs, returned to practice Wednesday, on a limited basis. The fact that he even can walk 10 days after the injury is good news; it looked like an ugly injury when it happened.
Absent from the injury report was cornerback Dunta Robinson, who suffered a concussion in the regular-season finale. He has since received full clearance to return to action.
The Falcons host the fifth-seeded Seahawks on Sunday.
