Tony Gonzalez is on the field and practicing. That's what you need to know first, because it's possible that these are the last three games of Gonzalez's career. It's still a joy to watch the man practice his craft.
From there, the news is less rosy:
Coach Mike Smith said Thomas DeCoud (concussion) hasn't been ruled out yet but still in Stage 1 of concussion protocol— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) December 12, 2013
Thomas DeCoud (concussion) and Antone Smith (knee) were once again held out of practice Thursday #WASvsATL— Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) December 12, 2013
Neither of these guys are particularly likely to suit up. Smith's injury removes that home-run element from the offense—I know, I know, for one carry—and DeCoud's absence means the Falcons will lean heavily on Zeke Motta. Not the worst thing in the world and perhaps even the right thing, but the Falcons will be pretty thin at safety this week.
The rest of the report will land later, but barring an aggravation, I expect everyone to go. Even Roddy White.
