Falcons vs. Buccaneers inactives: Matt Gono active for the first time.

The undrafted rookie will have an opportunity today.

The Falcons announced earlier in the week that left guard Wes Schweitzer would miss the final game of the season, so both Ben Garland and Matt Gono are active in his stead. We should see a rotation of both, but it wouldn’t be surprising for Gono to receive the bulk of the snaps as the team is eager to see what he can bring to an NFL game. He’s an intriguing prospect, so today he has an opportunity to showcase his skills for 2019.

No real surprises with the Falcons, as Giorgio Tavecchio, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Ryan Neal, Bruce Carter, Wes Schweitzer, Justin Zimmer, and Terrell McClain will not play today.

As for Tampa Bay, they’ll be missing the downfield threat of wide receiver DeSean Jackson and the beard points of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, but nothing jumps out on their list of inactives.

It’s the final game of the 2018 season, and the Falcons hope to end it on a positive note with a win.
