Falcons C Alex Mack (calf) is questionable for Week 17 against the Panthers.

Mack picked up a calf injury in Wednesday's practice before sitting out Thursday and Friday. That progression usually leads to a missed game, but Mack may try to give it a go with the Falcons in basically a must-win situation. In better news, LG Andy Levitre (triceps) looks set to return.

Falcons C Alex Mack (calf) will not practice Thursday.

Mack strained his calf during Wednesday's practice. Mid-week injuries are never a good thing, and they are even more troubling when followed by a missed practice. Mack sitting would be a huge blow to the offense in a must-win game.

Falcons restructured C Alex Mack's contract.

Atlanta turned $1 million of his base salary into a signing bonus, creating $750,000 in cap space. Coming off an outstanding first season with the Falcons, Mack should solidly anchor a quality line again this year.

Falcons C Alex Mack has recovered from the broken leg he suffered in the NFC Championship Game.

Mack played every snap in the Super Bowl despite the injury. He should be a full-go for the offseason program and ready to again anchor a quality offensive line.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn expects C Alex Mack (broken leg) to avoid surgery.

It was reported the day after the Super Bowl that Mack would likely go under the knife, but Quinn had a better update. Even though it's apparently a minor break, it's remarkable that Mack was able to play every snap against the Patriots. Mack proved to be worth every penny of his five-year, $45 million contract during his first season in Atlanta.

Falcons C Alex Mack likely will require surgery to repair a chip fracture in his left fibula.

Mack was able to play every snap in the Super Bowl despite the injury, suggesting it is not a serious break. Mack could miss the early part of the offseason program, but he should be ready for training camp at the latest.

Falcons C Alex Mack is active for Super Bowl 51 against the Patriots.

He will attempt to play through a chip fracture in his left fibula, an injury that could limit Mack's effectiveness and/or cost him snaps during the game. It's a big concern for Atlanta's rushing attack, particularly against New England's stout defensive front. The Falcons' Super Bowl inactives are WR Nick Williams, RB Terron Ward, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, S Dashon Goldson, LB Josh Keyes, OG Wes Schweitzer, and TE D.J. Tialavea.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's "uncertain how well or long" Falcons C Alex Mack will play in Super Bowl LI against the Patriots.

Mack is reportedly dealing with a chip fracture in his left fibula but wasn't listed on Atlanta's final injury report. Under normal circumstances, this injury would sideline Mack for 6-8 weeks. It's anyone guess how Mack will hold up and concern is reportedly "running high among Atlanta officials." Mack will gut it out with the help of a pain-killing injection but if the injury ends up being too much for him, we could see Ben Garland fill in at center.

Falcons C Alex Mack (fibula) wasn't listed on the final injury report for Super Bowl LI against the Patriots.

Coach Dan Quinn expressed concern about Mack's fibula injury earlier this week but he's prepared to gut it out for the biggest game of his career. Mack earned PFF's highest run-blocking grade out of 37 qualified centers during the regular season. Mack, Dwight Freeney (calf) and Julio Jones (toe) were all limited at practice this week but none of them were on the Falcons' final injury report.

Speaking Thursday, Falcons coach Dan Quinn admitted "concern" over C Alex Mack's left fibula injury.

"The good thing is he’s feeling better than he did in the NFC Championship Game," Quinn said. "But yeah, I’m concerned. I’m not panicked, but I’m concerned." Mack was spotted at Thursday's practice coaching up backup Ben Garland. Mack seems likely to suit up for the biggest game of the year, but could be on a quick hook. He'd be a huge loss against the Patriots' stout run defense.

Falcons C Alex Mack (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

Coach Dan Quinn said he expects his center to get in more work as the week progresses. The Falcons did not even list Mack on last week's injury report. There is no chance he sits out the biggest game of the season. He and Julio Jones (toe) will be ready to go.

Alex Mack (ankle) was not listed on Friday's injury report.

Mack sat out the entire week of practice, but the Falcons not even listing him as questionable is a sure sign he will be ready by this time next week. Julio Jones (toe) was also left off the report after surprisingly getting in some limited work on Friday.
Sat, Jan 28, 2017 10:46:00 AM

Falcons C Alex Mack (ankle) said he will be ready for the Super Bowl.

Mack is reportedly dealing with a "swollen, painful sprained ankle" which will keep him out of practice this week, but it was always likely he would gut it out in the biggest game of the year. Still, his practice participation will be worth monitoring next week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Falcons C Alex Mack will not practice this week because of a "swollen, painful sprained ankle."

Mack suffered the injury in the NFC Championship Game, but he was able to finish out the win. He might have been in trouble if the Super Bowl was this weekend, but the extra time off should allow him to suit up for the biggest game of the year. That said, his status will need to be monitored closely next week.
