Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham is active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Abraham, 34, missed most of last Sunday's 30-28 divisional playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks after aggravating a left ankle he originally injured in the second half of the Falcons' meaningless regular season finale loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Abraham was limited all week in practice and was listed as "questionable" on the team's final injury report.

Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux is also active after being listed as "questionable" with a shoulder injury.

For the 49ers, there are no surprises on their inactive list. Defensive tackle Justin Smith (elbow/triceps) is active after being listed as "probable" on the injury report. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who is being investigated by the San Francisco police department followed an alleged sexual assault after last week's win over the Green Bay Packers, is also active. The 49ers added wide receiver Chad Hall to the active roster on Saturday.

San Francisco: QB Scott Tolzien, RB Jewel Hampton, G Joe Looney, NT Ian Williams, DL Tony Jerod-Eddie, LB Cam Johnson, S Trenton Robinson

Atlanta: QB Dominique Davis, WR Tim Toone, OT Lamar Holmes, G Phillipkeith Manley, G Harland Gunn, DT Travian Robertson, DE Lawrence Sidbury
