  • Gholston (neck) registered three solo tackles -- including one for loss -- in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Falcons. The 26-year-old defensive end was back in action after missing the prior two games following his Week 9 neck injury. Gholston recorded his first stop behind the line of scrimmage since Week 3, but he remains without a sack after logging three apiece in each of the past two seasons. Due to his relatively marginal production, he's only a fantasy consideration in the deepest of IDP formats.

  • Gholston (neck) is active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the Falcons. As expected, the 26-year-old will return from a two-game absence due to a scary neck injury suffered in Week 9 against the Saints. Gholston was able to log full practices both Thursday and Friday, cementing his return. His presence will be particularly valued against the Falcons, considering that fellow defensive end Robert Ayers (concussion) is out for the contest.

  • Gholston logged another full practice Friday but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. Gholston, who has missed the last two games with a neck injury, appears on track to return in Week 12. However, the team is being cautious with this injury designation, so a final decision on his status is unlikely to be confirmed until closer to kickoff. Ryan Russell would presumably fill in at defensive end should Gholston suffer some type of setback.

  • Gholston (neck) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. With Gholston following up a limited session Wednesday with a full one Thursday, the defensive end looks to be ready to return to the field just two weeks after being carted off with a serious neck injury. Expect confirmation on Gholston's status to come in the next day or two.

  • Gholston (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Dolphins by head coach Dirk Koetter, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. The 26-year-old defensive end endured some tense moments in the Week 9 loss to the Saints when he was carted off the field with his injury, but he has been slowly working back toward normal functionality. Gholston was still wearing a neck brace last week, and it doesn't appear as if he'll return to the practice field until Week 12 prep begins, at the earliest.
