Mack (back) was a full participant for Friday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
For a second straight week, Mack improved from a limited designation during Wednesday's session, to a full-go for Friday's practice. Mack appears to be in the clear for Atlanta's Week 10 matchup against Myles Garrett and a Browns defense that's racked up 22 sacks this season (tied for 14th). Now in his third year with the Falcons, Mack is taking on his former team for the first time since departing Cleveland in 2016 after seven years in the Browns organization.
Mack (back) was a full participant for Thursday's practice after being limited for Wednesday's session, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Atlanta is relieved to get the anchor of its offensive line back healthy, with starting guards Andy Levitre (triceps) and Brandon Fusco (ankle) both on injured reserve. Mack is the foundational piece to a Falcons line that's struggled in opening up holes in the ground game (3.7 yards per rush attempt, third-worst in the NFL), but has allowed just 20 sacks this season (16th-best in the league).
Mack (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.
Mack will suit up in Week 17, despite failing to participate in practice Thursday and Friday. If Mack were to re-injure his calf Sunday, Ben Garland could fill in at center.
Mack (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Mack fit in a limited practice Wednesday, only to sit out both Thursday and Friday. We'd expect Ben Garland to take over at center if he can't play.
Mack (calf) won't practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
Head coach Dan Quinn said Mack strained his calf in practice Wednesday, per Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site. On the bright side, there doesn't seem to be any immediate concern over Mack's availability for Sunday's game against the Panthers, suggesting the strain could be minor in nature.
