Leftwich Suffers Ankle Injury; Says He’s Okay

Leftwich vs the Titans 

QB Byron Leftwich played last week, and didn’t exactly light it up in his time in the game at Tennessee.  Any thoughts of playing anytime soon might now only be dictated by the play of Joey Harrington, but also the ankle injury that took place to Leftwich on Thursday at practice.

Leftwich, who was getting more and more practice time, says that the injury is not serious, and that it’s only a minor sprain.  He stated that X-rays were negative.  “I took the rest of today’s practice off and we’ll see how it feels in the morning,” he said.

Having Leftwich play shows the desperate nature the QB spot is in for the Falcons.  Last week he was only 2-of-8 passing for 28 yards with an interception in relief of an awful Harrington.  Bobby Petrino said Leftwich had moved up to No. 2 on the depth chart behind Harrington.
