Ridley secured six of nine targets for 50 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 43-6 win against the Raiders.

The third-year receiver was limited throughout the practice week because of a foot issue, but he contributed Atlanta's first TD on Sunday in what turned out to be a laugher. He exited briefly in the third quarter with an apparent ankle injury, but he was able to return two plays later. Ridley was the unquestioned No. 1 pass-catching option, pacing Atlanta in targets, receptions and receiving yards while Julio Jones sat out with a hamstring injury. Entering Week 12, Ridley had gone for 110-plus receiving yards in both games Jones was inactive this season (Weeks 3 and 5). We will have to wait and see on Jones' status for a Week 13 home game against New Orleans. Ridley has fared well both with and without Jones in the lineup this year. He needs just 70 receiving yards to surpass his best season-long total of 866.
