Falcons’ Leftwich says ankle injury is ‘minor sprain’

For Leftwich, it’s a painfully familiar story.

Leftwich missed 15 games with injuries the last two years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, including 10 games with a bad ankle.

The good news for Leftwich this time: The injury is not serious, and it’s not the same ankle that shut down his 2006 season.

“It’s OK. It’s a minor sprain,” Leftwich said, adding the Falcons’ medical staff “didn’t want me to do anything further to it.”

Leftwich said X-rays on the ankle were negative.

“I took the rest of today’s practice off and we’ll see how it feels in the morning,” he said.

Leftwich, who was released by the Jaguars late in the preseason, signed with Atlanta on Sept. 18 and made his first appearance in last week’s loss to Tennessee
