HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Jets defensive end John Abraham is questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a sprained right knee.

Coach Herman Edwards said Abraham is still sore and would make a game-time decision on the status of his Pro Bowl player. Abraham was initially listed as probable to start the week after missing his fifth straight game with the injury. Last week, Abraham said he needed to weigh his options when deciding whether to play because of his impeding free agency.

Though Abraham is still sore, Edwards expects him to participate when the team returns to practice Wednesday.

"When a player can't go full speed you really don't want to put him in harm's way," Edwards said. "It's best for John, best for the team until he can go full speed he shouldn't play. He's going to do everything he can this week to try to be prepared."
