Falcons second-year tackle Matt Gono (back) was been declared out of the game against the Eagles at 8:20 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium by coach Dan Quinn.

“We’ll leave him out,” Quinn said. “He practiced all week, but in a limited fashion. He won’t make it back, but certainly having three days of practice helped a lot.”

Guard/center Wes Schweitzer (shoulder) was limited. The Falcons are hoping that wide receiver Russell Gage gets cleared from the league’s concussion protocol in time to play. He was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for the game.

“He also has a little tight hamstring,” Quinn said.

Also, returner Kenjon Barner (ankle) was at practice and will be available to play.
