The Bucs head coach told reporters: "You're going to pay attention to Tony anyway. It's important to realise, no matter what, when they line up in three wide [receivers], those three wide guys are NFL football players.
"We're certainly going to pay attention to Tony Gonzalez, he's a great player, but we've got to make sure we cover everybody. [Quarterback] Matt Ryan is very good at distributing the football and by that I mean reading out the play and going and taking what the defense gives you. We've got to make sure we cover all of our bases.
"We're not quite sure who is going to play and who is not going to play, we have an idea. We have our injuries too. At this time in the league year, everybody's got injuries. I think what happens is you show up Sunday and whatever team you have, you have to play with and win."
The two NFC South sides play at the Georgia Dome tomorrow.
