Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez was not on the field during the session of Friday's practice viewed by the media.
Gonzalez has been out this week with a toe injury.
However, wide receiver Harry Douglas, who has a knee injury, did practice.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said he was hopeful both could play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Gonzalez appears to be a game-time decision. He was injured last Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. He was held to three catches for 29 yards.
