With Kaleb McGary questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Matt Gono could be in line to make the first start of his NFL career. Up first for Gono, the starter? Khalil Mack and a talented Bears pass rush.

Gono’s ability to hold up against one of the league’s top pass-rushing groups will be important for a Falcons team seeking its first win of the season. After seeing the strides he’s made throughout his career, and the way he played after taking over for an injured McGary in Week 2, Matt Ryan is confident Gono can do what the team asks of him.

“I don’t think the moment is too big for him,” Ryan said. “Last week, coming into the game and just operating the way that he’s been trained to do, I was impressed seeing that. He’s definitely got the athleticism. He’s got the power and he’s certainly shown that he’s capable of handling the moment. I’ve been impressed with him.”
