Falcons defensive end John Abraham aggravated his left ankle sprain in the second quarter and did not return against Seattle on Sunday but plans to be ready to play against the 49ers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
“After awhile, I just couldn’t push off of it anymore,” Abraham said.
Abraham was injured in the fourth quarter of the Tampa Bay game in the regular season finale when head coach Mike Smith elected to play his starters despite having the No. 1 seed wrapped up.
“Oh yeah, you know me, you can’t keep me out of that game,” Abraham said. “We’re going to treat the (heck) out of it.”
