Some positive came from the Falcons’ practice today as starting right tackle, Kaleb Mcgary, returned to the field.
Kaleb McGary is back at practice today for the #Falcons

McGary suffered an injury that looked much more gruesome than it was in Week 2 against the Cowboys. He hobbled off the field, unable to put any weight on his leg, and it seemed like it could be a season-ending issue. However, McGary was diagnosed with a mild MCL sprain and was only expected to miss one week.
After not playing against the Bears, he’s back at practice and could start against the Packers on Monday night. However, Matt Gono performed admirably in his place. If McGary doesn’t play up to par when he returns, he could find himself in a backup role for the rest of the season.
