Falcons safety William Moore will miss his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury on Sunday, perhaps putting into question whether he will be ready for the teams playoff game in two weeks.
Moore has a history with hamstring injuries, as he suffered two during his rookie season of 2009 that, along with a knee injury, limited him to two games that year. On Oct. 28 of that year...
The Atlanta Falcons have already ruled out safety William
Moore for today’s regular season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while
they have wide receiver Roddy White and defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux
listed among those questionable to play.
Moore missed practice all week due to his hamstring injury
and will not play today. Cornerback Chris Owens is also out due...
Tony Gonzalez hasn't changed his stance on retirement since the first day of training camp.
The 13-time Pro Bowl tight end remains 95 percent certain he will walk away from football after the season, though everything still hinges on whether the Atlanta Falcons advance deep into postseason as a No. 1 playoff seed.
At 36, Gonzalez continues to make enough big plays that he was...
Tony Gonzalez is still 95 percent sure he will retire at the end of the season.
Just don't try to pigeonhole the 13-time Pro Bowl tight end into giving more information about his future, no matter how many light years away.
''I see what you're trying to do,'' Gonzalez said with a smile Thursday. ''Jedi mind trick.''

The Bucs were hoping to bounce back against St. Louis last week following a blowout loss to the Saints the previous week. Unfortunately that did not happen and Josh Freeman had another bad game. Facing lots of scrutiny in his young career, he and the team are hoping to end the season on a high note at Atlanta. However, the Bucs may not see Atlanta’s best team on the field as they...
Let's take a look back at the play that resulted in a Matt Ryan 44 yard TD pass to Roddy White against the Lions this past week. The Falcons started out by lining up in 22 personnel with 2 TEs, 2 backs, and 1 WR out wide (White). The Lions come out in a cover one scheme which means they’ll have one deep safety and everyone else will be playing man. Originally Atlanta stacks...
William Moore is missing his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury, and the Falcons' secondary also is without cornerback Christopher Owens against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Chris Hope is starting for Moore. Owens also has a hamstring injury.
Wide receiver Roddy White, held out of practice this week with a knee injury, is starting. White continues his streak of not missing...
Roddy White: Are you crazy? I don’t care if he doesn’t practice all week or is reported to have a hard cast around his knee. He’s clearly going to play, if the last two weeks are any indication, and you have to treat this like we treated Calvin Johnson’s knee injury: they’re resting him so he’s ready to go come Sunday. However, there is one very LARGE caveat to the...
Sunday Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons Falcons WR Roddy White (knee)
Jock to Doc take: White did not practice Thursday, and while his knee issue does not seem like a big deal, the Falcons have already secured the NFC's top seed. He will likely be severely limited or scratched altogether.
