Tony Gonzalez misses practice with toe injury


After injuring a toe on his left foot in last Sunday’s loss to Seattle, Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez said that he was hopeful that it wouldn’t turn out to be that bad.

It remains bad enough that Gonzalez missed practice on Wednesday. Gonzalez was clearly limited by the injury during the Seahawks game and a continued absence from practice on Thursday would not be a good sign for his chances of playing against the Buccaneers.

Gonzalez has been uncommonly durable over the course of his career, missing just two games because of injury and none since the 2006 season. In this season where nothing seems to go right for Atlanta, though, even Gonzalez’s durability may wind up in the dustbin.

If Gonzalez can’t play, Levine Toilolo is likely to see an increase in playing time with the first team.

The team announced that running back Jason Snelling also missed practice with an ankle injury, while running back Steven Jackson and wide receiver Roddy White were both limited participants.

    As a saints fan it sucks to see the guy go out on this kind of season. One of my favorite players of all time. Class on and off the field.

    Yeah because KC has done so well before this season. And don’t you worry…KC will be watching the superbowl right along side Tony on the couch. No question about it.

    This is part of the revised plan. Tanking for Clowney

    I bet his toe would feel much better on a good team

    He was in KC for long enough to see some good years. They just weren’t able to ever get it done at the next level. Cant blame him for wanting a chance for more really. He just chose the wrong team. They’ve not been able to give him any more than KC ever did. He’ll always be one of my favorites ever, and will surely go into the HOF wearing a chiefs jersey.
