Green Bay Packers Vs. Atlanta Falcons: DE John Abraham Will Play

OFFICIAL: John Abraham will play today for the Falcons #atlgb10less than a minute ago via Seesmic Desktop


From the official site comes news that Falcons sackmaster, John Abraham, will suit up and play against Aaron Rodgers and the visiting Green Bay Packers. Abraham has eight sacks this year and his impact was sorely missed last week when the Falcons were unable to put any kind of pressure on Rams quarterback, Sam Bradford. The rest of the inactives are listed below, though none are significant. The Falcons will have all their weapons at their disposal when they try to take a huge step towards clinching homefield advantage.

For the Packers, the only notable starter missing – other than Atari Bigby who was expected to miss this game – is TE Donald Lee. Andrew Quarless will get the start in his place. Quarless, you’ll remember, started earlier in the season when both Lee and original starter, Jermichael Finley went down with injuries. Lee’s injury shouldn’t hurt the Packers offense overall since Rodgers hasn’t been targeting the tight ends as much since Finley was placed on injured reserve.
