Why is Mike Glennon not playing in Week 1?

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback said Wednesday that he is not playing Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a sprained left ankle.

“I just haven’t felt 100 percent for the past couple weeks, and I’ll be honest with you I haven’t been playing very well,” Glennon said.

I don’t know how long I’ll play.” “

There’s a chance it will come back.

I don’t know how long I’ll play.”

Glennon has missed four games because of the ankle injury.

The team will hold an optional media session Thursday and make a decision about whether to play Glennon or Daniel Thomas.
