FLOWERY BRANCH — While defensive end John Abraham is expected back in action from a sprained ankle by the time the Falcons play on Jan. 13, the Falcons’ leading pass rusher might not be 100 percent or able to play as many snaps as usual.
The Falcons could use a lift from fellow defensive end Kroy Biermann, who finished second on the team in sacks this season with four behind Abraham’s 10.
Biermann had a career-high 52 tackles this season, and his four sacks are the most since his five in 2009.
“I’ve flied around,” Biermann said. “I’ve fit into the scheme and the positions that they put me into. I’ve played hard. Numbers don’t always tell things. Obviously every guy wants those numbers. But that’s not always the full story of a guy’s play. But personally, I want to step that area up and have every year that I’ve been here and have got to find a way to work and to get it done.”
