Greg Schiano: 'Tampa Bay Buccaneers will pay attention to Tony Gonzalez'

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano says that his team will be paying attention to Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez during their game tomorrow.

Greg Schiano has confirmed that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will "pay attention" to Tony Gonzalez during their game against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend.

The Falcons will be without wide receivers Julio Jones, who is out for the rest of the season, and Roddy White for the contest, leaving the tight end as the team's most experienced receiver.

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.
