Falcons injury report: Matt Gono ruled out against Vikings

Matt Gono 3

Matt Gono was one of the standout performers for the Falcons this preseason, but the team will be without the second-year right tackle for their season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.


Coach Dan Quinn confirmed Friday that Gono would be held out of the game due to a back injury, which limited during Wednesday's practice and kept him out of Thursday and Friday's practices. Gono is the only player expected to miss the game due to injury.

His absence means first-round pick Kaleb McGary and Ty Sambrailo will be the two players available at right tackle, and Quinn said that both players would play on Sunday.
