  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    McGary was put on the reserve/COVID-19 Monday. McGary, the Falcons' 2019 first-round selection, has been a mainstay on the offensive line since his rookie campaign. If he does miss this Sunday's game against the Dolphins, it'll be the first contest he's sat out since Week 1 of his rookie season. Jason Spriggs will likely start in McGary's place if the latter is unable to suit up.

    The Falcons placed McGary (undisclosed) on the PUP list Thursday, John Deighton of the team's official site reports.

Left guard Matt Gono (undisclosed) was also placed on the PUP list.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Cleared to face Buccaneers

    McGary (personal) is active for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay. McGary was unavailable for Atlanta's Week 14 loss to the Chargers, and he has missed five consecutive practices while attending to a family matter. Entering Sunday morning, the primary barrier was McGary clearing NFL COVID-19 protocols in time for kickoff. With that aspect assured, the second-year man is able to return to his right tackle post for the Week 15 NFC South clash.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Ready to face Panthers

    McGary (elbow) does not carry an injury designation into Thursday's matchup against the Panthers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. The 2019 first-round pick was held to limited practice participation throughout the week, but he's ready to roll for what will be his seventh start of the year. McGary was carted off the field with a knee injury against Dallas in Week 2 and forced to sit out the subsequent game, but he's fielded 100 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps in four appearances since.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Can't go Sunday

    McGary (knee-MCL) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Chicago. The 2019 first-round pick seemed like a long shot to play all week, though a limited practice session Friday provided a glimmer of hope. Without McGary for Week 3, 24-year-old Matt Gono will log his first career start at right tackle.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Questionable for Week 3

    McGary (knee-MCL) is questionable heading into the Falcons' Week 3 matchup against the Bears, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Though McGary is officially listed as questionable, 24-year-old Matt Gono is expected to pick up his first career start at right tackle, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. If McGary is healthy enough to suit up for Sunday's contest, he may be utilized as an emergency option should Gono struggle in containing Khalil Mack (knee) coming off the edge. McGary was, at least, able to log a limited practice Friday after sitting out the session prior.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Brief absence expected

McGary is likely unavailable for Week 3 but may not miss additional time beyond that. Matt Gono is the likely replacement at right tackle for the Falcons.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Out with knee injury

    McGary (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. The 2019 first-round pick likely will be replaced at right tackle by 24-year-old Matt Gono, who entered Week 2 with six regular-season appearances to his name but zero career starts. Gono only fielded two offensive snaps in the season opener against Seattle, but as McGary sits out, he is expected to be thrust into a prominent role against the Dallas pass rush.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Limited workload Wednesday

    McGary (knee) was a limited participant during Atlanta's practice session Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports. The rookie offensive tackle had to be carted off the field Week 2 against Philadelphia but was able to return later in that contest, and he's played 100 percent of the offensive snaps during Atlanta's two games since. McGary has thus far toughed his way through the issue, but if he is able to upgrade to a full practice participant Thursday or Friday, it will provide reassurance that he is in line for his fifth consecutive start to kick off 2019.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: DNP for practice

    McGary (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice session, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. McGary is tough, as in eats glass and nails for breakfast, tough. The rookie right tackle was carted off the field during the second quarter of Sunday's 24-20 win against the Eagles, with what appeared to be a grisly knee injury that would hold him out for the remainder of Week 2 at the very least. He surprisingly was able to return to the field during the fourth quarter, but his status for Sunday's road matchup against Indianapolis remains undetermined. In an interview with Fox News Atlanta's Ryan Gaydos postgame, McGary mentioned that he heard a "snap, crackle, pop" sound as the injury was occurring, but said that if he were to sit the rest of the game, that would mean be admitting defeat and letting his teammates down.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Returns in fourth quarter

    McGary (knee) returned in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Eagles, D. Orlando Ledbetter of AJC reports. McGary was carted off with the injury in the first half, but it wasn't serious enough to keep the 2019 first-rounder out for the remainder of the contest.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Expected to be active Sunday

    Head coach Dan Quinn said that he expects McGary to be active for Sunday's matchup against Minnesota but has not yet named the team's starter at right tackle, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. McGary missed Atlanta's first four preseason contests (including the Hall of Game) while recoving from a cardiac ablation procedure, but he was able to recover within one month's time and register 41 offensive snaps in the exhibition finale against Jacksonville. The Falcons are banged up at right tackle with Matt Gono (back) sitting out Thursday's practice session, and Ty Sambrailo just two and a half weeks removed from a shoulder injury sustained in practice. Despite him being a first-round pick, sentiments around training camp were that McGary might sit and learn behind veterans Sambrailo and Gono for the first few weeks of the regular season, but Atlanta may not be afforded that luxury.

  • Falcons' Kaleb McGary: Will have conditioning tested

    The Falcons will test McGary's conditioning during the three practices leading up to Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. McGary has made an excellent recovery from a cardiac ablation procedure, rehabbing in just four weeks compared to the initial six- to eight-week estimate. However, he's still taken a lot of time off, and the coaching staff is predictably concerned about whether McGary can handle a full workload in the regular season -- he did start the preseason finale. If his conditioning is up to par, there's a chance the rookie first-round pick could start his first NFL game Sunday.
