Ovie Mughelli Injury Status: Not Done For Season, Apparently

In his weekly Monday press conference with the media, Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith all but confirmed that All-Pro FB Ovie Mughelli will not be out for the season, despite suffering what appeared to be a serious knee injury in the Falcons game against Detroit on Sunday:

Smith: My policy is that if someone had a season ending injury, I would announce it. We just have some guys banged up. 

However, with Atlanta entering its bye week and not playing again until Nov. 6 against Indianapolis, don't expect much additional information on Mughelli or any other Falcon injuries this week:

 Atlanta_Falcons 
Smith: This week we are going radio silence on injuries. Won't have any news on injured players. 

After their humiliating 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints on national TV, the Colts seem headed for a full-on pursuit of a 0-16 season and a chance at Stanford QB Andrew Luck, which could give the Falcons a get well week and a 5-3 record headed into a crucial home showdown with the NFC South leading Saints on Nov. 13.
