During the press interviews Wednesday, Falcons coach Mike Smith says that he expects John Abraham to start against the 49ers.
Book it as fact.
While the Falcons are making it seem touch and go with Abraham due to his gimpy left ankle, the 13-year vet has been working hard and getting a ton of treatment on the ankle, and will start vs San Fran.
Abraham, the NFL’s active sacks leader, missed practice Wednesday, and may not do much at all, but he says he will go, and now Smith says he will go vs San Fran.
No more talk about Abraham needed – he will start.
