Giancarlo Stanton tweaked his right ankle while crossing first base on a groundout to shortstop in the third inning Sunday.
The 22-year-old slugger remained in the game, but in the later innings the ankle stiffened on him.
With a commanding seven-run lead, Stanton was replaced in right field by Chris Coghlan in the seventh. The Marlins don't believe the twisted ankle is serious, but Stanton may sit out Monday's 2:20 p.m. ET start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
