The Falcons used the week off last week during the first round of the playoffs to get about as healthy as they've been since the season began. All the players listed on the injury report are good to go Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, including defensive end John Abraham.

Abraham injured his ankle in the final game of the season and was limited during practice this week, but he's active on game day, making his seventh career postseason start. In his playoff experience, Abraham has 19 tackles and four sacks.

The Falcons also welcome back safety William Moore from a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the final five games of the season.

Cornerback Chris Owens is inactive and was ruled out earlier in the week.

With the return of Moore, the Falcons have their full complement of starters on the field.

Inactives for the Falcons include QB Dominique Davis, OL Phillipkeith Manley, WR Tim Toone, OT Lamar Holmes, OL Harland Gunn and DE Lawrence Sidbury. The Seahawks have no surprises among their inactives. Their list includes WR Deon Butler, CB DeShawn Shead, CB Byron Maxwell, LB Allen Bradford, OG Rishaw Johnson, OT Mike Person and DT Jaye Howard.
