John Abraham says he’ll play against the 49ers

Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham ended up aggravating his ankle injury during yesterday’s win over the Seahawks.

“After awhile, I just couldn’t push off of it anymore,” Abraham said.

Abraham says he’ll be ready for this week’s NFL title game against the 49ers.

“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.”

When Abraham isn’t on the field, the Falcons’ pass rush is nonexistent.  They need him to play this week.
