Falcons | Tony Gonzalez not sure of status
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 10:44:02 -0800
Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) is unsure of his status heading into Week 11, and he indicated that he'll likely have more tests this week to determine the severity of the ailment. "I played on it," he said. "Wasn't able to go full speed, but we'll see how it goes the next day. Usually when you have injuries, you can get through it through in the game. Then the next day after it calms down and swells up a little bit, then that's when the trouble starts. So, we'll see how it goes. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up, and hopefully it's not that bad." He hasn't missed a game since 2006 and has missed only two games in his 16-plus year NFL career. Gonzalez finished with only three catches for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10.
A hobbled Tony G is still likely better than many tight ends you'll have to choose from. Keep an eye on how much he accomplishes in practice this week. The Falcons will surely attempt to rest him up as much as possible.
