Falcons' Gonzalez, Douglas set to practice

Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith told 790 the Zone that tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide receiver Harry Douglas will return to practice Friday coming off injuries.

Gonzalez has missed the past two days of practice after injuring a toe on his left foot during last Sunday’s 33-10 loss to Seattle. Douglas missed Thursday’s practice with a knee injury after having full participation on Wednesday.

Gonzalez hasn’t missed a game since the 2006 season. Smith expressed optimism about Gonzalez’s status even after not having the veteran on the field for two days.

"I would never count Tony Gonzalez out,'' Smith said Thursday. "Never.''
