    On Wednesday, Falcons head coach Mike Smith revealed the team's plan for Tony Gonzalez, saying the veteran tight end would play in the final two preseason games but also will have enough time to get ready for the 2013 campaign.

    The coach, however, declined to give a hard-target date for the player's return.

    Smith believes Gonzalez would need at least a week to get ready for the third preseason game. For that week, the Falcons typically game-plan for that contest, while having their healthy regulars play well into the third quarter.

    Atlanta's third preseason game is Aug. 24 against Tennessee (in Nashville), meaning Gonzalez should return sometime around Aug. 17.
