Falcons' Abraham, Babineaux questionable
January 18, 2013
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith says defensive end John Abraham and defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux will be listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC title game against San Francisco.
Abraham and Babineaux were limited in practice on Friday, but both are expected to start when Atlanta (14-3) hosts the 49ers (12-4-1).
Abraham has been bothered by a sprained left ankle but says he will be ready to play. He is the NFL's active sacks leader with 122 in his 13-year career. Abraham led the Falcons with 10 sacks and finished the regular season with seven pass breakups.
Babineaux, who has a sore shoulder, finished the regular season with 3.5 sacks, five pass breakups, and one interception.
Strong safety William Moore (hand) and cornerback Christopher Owens (hamstring) are listed as probable.
