The Falcons' sack leader appeared to re-injure his ankle at the end of the first half.
John Abraham appeared to re-injure his ankle in the final minute of the first half in the Falcons' NFC divisional game against the Seahawks, and his return is questionable. Abraham limped off the field as Seattle made their final drive before the end of the half. Abraham sustained a nasty ankle injury in the final game of the season against the Buccaneers. He was carted off the field in Week 17 and his status for the postseason was immediately in doubt.
But after an extra week of rest, Abraham moved from questionable to active before Sunday's game in Atlanta. He was obviously not at a full 100 percent in the first half, but was still able to play. He did not, however, register a tackle in the first 30 minutes. With the injury coming in the final minute, Abraham finished the half with his helmet off and sitting on the sideline. He will presumably get treatment in the locker room, but he's still listed as questionable for the second half.
Cliff Matthews came on to replace him for the final series of the half.
