Gonzalez wants the milestone

Tight end Tony Gonzalez hopes he can play this week and get the four catches he needs to reach 1,000 for his career.

"Yeah, that's part of the motivation," said Gonzalez, who's battling back from calf injury. "It's a milestone. It's a great milestone. I would love to be able to get it done this year."

Gonzalez, running back Michael Turner (ankle), linebacker Curtis Lofton (shoulder/hamstring), defensive tackle Thomas Johnson (knee), wide receiver Eric Weems (head) and Peprah (hamstring) did not practice.
