Falcons LT Sam Baker suffered a torn patellar tendon in the team's Saturday night preseason game. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Baker will miss the season. That removes a player who has graded out among the league's worst OTs over the past few seasons, according to Pro Football Focus' ratings. So missing Baker certainly shouldn't crush the Falcons offense. Disrupting the O-line group adds a challenge, however, for a group trying to bounce back from an injury-laden, terrible 2013. Rookie Jake Matthews had been slotted to start at RT but could slide into Baker's vacated role, where the team planned to play him in the future anyway. The situation bears watching, but we're not changing our outlook for the potentially explosive Falcons offense because of Baker's absence.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) practiced all week and will play against the Saints on Sunday. New Orleans has tightened up against the pass lately, allowing just 5.8 yards per attempt and 4 total passing scores over the last 4 games. But Ryan remains in the lower-end QB1 mix in a game that should find him playing catch-up and chucking it plenty.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's fully expected back for this weekend's game against the Saints, but we'll continue to monitor his status over the next few days.
The Falcons have downgraded QB Matt Ryan to out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. That means Matt Schaub will start for Atlanta, raising the fantasy ceiling for the Seattle defense.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Seahawks. He returned to practice on Friday, and HC Dan Quinn said they'll see how the ankle responds and make a decision on Ryan's status Saturday. Check back then for another update. QB Matt Schaub will draw the start if Ryan is out.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Seahawks this weekend, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.
