John Abraham is at 80 percent, will play

Buccaneers Falcons Football AP

Falcons defensive end John Abraham suffered an apparently ugly ankle injury during a meaningless Week 17 game.  He’s playing today, but he’s far from 100 percent.

Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan tells Jay Glazer of FOX that Abraham is at “about 80 percent,” and that the team will monitor the situation.

Abraham has been limited all week in practice.  If he’s limited in the game, it will be harder to get hands on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

    Now introducing Lawrence Sidbury. Bierman needs to have a huge game!

    Some DC will finally realize that you have to play contain against Wilson and force him to be a pocket passer.

    He wouldn’t stand a chance.

    They don’t need pressure today, they just need discipline.

    Matt Ryan is at 100% choke.

    Seattle/San Fran is the game people want.

    If Abraham tears more ligaments today can I expect a bunch of blow hardship to call for mike smith to be fired?
