Ridley was targeted by Matt Ryan on two occasions, but failed to record a reception during the Falcons' 18-12 loss to Philadelphia on Thursday night.

The No. 26 overall pick earned a spot as one of Atlanta's kick returners, but was largely uninvolved in the team's Week 1 offensive game plan. Ridley had a chance to pick up an important first-down catch during the fourth quarter, but was popped by an Eagles defender and unable to haul in the pass. Going up against a Carolina defense that surrendered the sixth-most fantasy points to wide receivers in standard scoring last year, the rookie wideout will look to get right Week 2.
