FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Tony Gonzalez showed up on the final injury report as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, but the Atlanta Falcons tight end is expected to play through a nagging toe issue.

Of bigger concern for the Falcons might be the status of linebacker Sean Weatherspoon. He also is questionable but was downgraded in Friday's practice to limited with a newly surfaced knee injury to go with a lingering shoulder problem.

With reserve linebacker Akeem Dent also questionable with an ankle injury, the Falcons have obvious health concerns at a position that has been decimated by injury all season.

Also questionable for the Falcons are defensive end Malliciah Goodman and safety Zeke Motta. Goodman missed the last two games with a calf injury, and Motta has been playing with a cast on his right hand after breaking a finger.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant, who banged up his thigh in a collision with teammate William Moore during the Saints game, had full participation Friday and is probable.

In Buffalo, standout defensive tackle Kyle Williams was added to the injury report with a back injury and is questionable. Williams told reporters he slept on it wrong.
