Head coach Dan Quinn ensured that Ridley is going to be a more integral part of the Falcons' offensive game plan moving forward, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Every game he should be a factor, not just because Freeman is going to miss this one," Quinn said Friday. "For sure, we are anticipating him being a bigger part of the offense."

Ridley will look to notch his first regular-season reception Sunday against the Panthers after being shut out on two targets Week 1 against Philadelphia. The No. 26 pick has a tough matchup forthcoming against a Carolina secondary that only allowed one Cowboys receiver to exceed 27 receiving yards in the season opener.
