Tony Gonzalez still absent from Falcons practice

Falcons coach Mike Smith got half his wish.

According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez was not on the field Friday for the portion of practice open to the media, though wide receiver Harry Douglas (knee) was there.

Smith said yesterday he was hoping to get both back on the field, for some preparation prior to Sunday’s game with the Buccaneers.

Getting Douglas back is a good sign, and if there’s anyone who can go a week without practicing and still be effective, it’s Gonzalez, though this sets the stage for his being a game-time decision.

UPDATE 12:55 p.m. ET: Smith said after practice that Gonzalez was limited, and would be listed as questionable on the injury report. So he must have done something, away from the prying eyes of reporters.

    They should have traded him to KC when they had the chance

    Why get out of bed when you have October G at home. Tony’s still getting his regardless.

    When the team is mathematically eliminated they should cut Tony and let him make one last run with the Chiefs. (Assuming another playoff team didn’t claim him off waivers first.)

    Hey Sweetheart,

    Just so we are clear, you will have to win that one as well as sweep the next two season before the Saints even tie up the all-time record. Just thought that you should know.
