Falcons WRs Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) did not practice on Thursday. It's a surprise after HC Dan Quinn said this morning that he expected both guys to participate. We'll see if they can get on the field tomorrow, but Ridley and Sanu both look no better than 50/50 for Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Saturday that both WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) and WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) will play against the Giants on Monday night. Ridley practiced on Friday and Saturday and said he feels like his "normal self." Sanu only worked on Saturday. "I feel good, but it's a little [pain] management, too," he said of his bruised hip. "It's definitely going to get better. I mean, it's way better than it was.'' Consider both Sanu and Ridley risk/reward Week 7 fantasy plays.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Friday, but WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) remained sidelined. Ridley now seems to have a better shot to play against the Giants on Monday night. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

An MRI on Falcons WR Calvin Ridley's injured ankle revealed a bone bruise, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. We don't have a timetable for his return yet. Ridley has an extra day to heal up with Atlanta playing the Giants next Monday night. But the Falcons also have a Week 8 bye and could elect to sit Ridley on Monday and give him 2 full weeks to get healthy.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley injured his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bucs. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

UPDATE: Ridley has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

The Falcons selected Alabama WR Calvin Ridley with the 26th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Ridley broke Amari Cooper’s school record for receiving yards by a freshman with 1,045 in 2015. He didn’t reach 1,000 yards in either his final 2 seasons, although Alabama’s passing game wasn’t as effective. Consider that Ridley posted a 63.6% catch rate last year, while all other Tide wideouts combined to haul in just 52.0% of their targets. Ridley is arriving from a pro-style offense and is 1 of the best route runners in the draft class. In other words, he’s about as pro-ready as they come. The concerns are that he’s small (6’0, 189 pounds), unathletic (8th percentile SPARQ score) and relatively old (he’ll turn 24 in December). It all makes it tough to get excited about his upside. So does the fact that he’s stuck with target hog Julio Jones in the short term. Ridley will battle with Mohamed Sanu for #2 on the totem pole.
