    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Returning to practice

    Calvin Ridley (personal) will return to practice this week, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.Ridley sat out a Week 5 contest in London for personal reasons, and the Atlanta Falcons were on bye Week 6, but it looks like the star wideout now is on track to be available for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. In four appearances this season, Ridley has earned double-digit targets on three occasions and never failed to achieve at least 50 receiving yards.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: To sit out Week 5

    Calvin Ridley won't travel with the Atlanta Falcons to London for Sunday's game against the Jets due to a personal matter, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.Along with Ridley, the Falcons will be without Russell Gage, who also won't make the trip due to an ankle injury. With his top two wide receivers out, Matt Ryan may just use his tight ends and running backs more than usual, but Atlanta's available wide receivers will be Olamide Zaccheaus, Tajae Sharpe, Christian Blake and Frank Darby.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Not seen at practice

    Calvin Ridley wasn't in attendance during the open portion of Thursday's practice for an unspecified reason, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.Ridley didn't appear on the Atlanta Falcons' initial Week 5 injury report released Wednesday, so the nature of his absence likely won't be known until the team reveals its second report later Thursday. Given that Thursdays tend to be the most rigorous session of the week for teams that play Sunday games, Ridley's absence wouldn't seem to be the result of a pre-planned maintenance day. The Falcons are scheduled to fly to London following Thursday's session and will hold their final practice of the week overseas Friday before playing the Jets on Sunday.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Big volume again in loss

    Calvin Ridley caught seven of 13 targets for 80 yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to Washington.The fourth-year receiver once again led the Atlanta Falcons in targets and catches, but it was Cordarrelle Patterson who led the club in receiving yards. Ridley has seen double-digit targets in three straight games but his actual production has been a little disappointing, as Sunday's yardage was a season high and he has only one TD. Ridley will get a golden opportunity for a breakout in a Week 5 matchup against the Jets in London.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Team high in receptions

    Calvin Ridley caught eight of 11 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Giants.Ridley led the Atlanta Falcons in receptions and targets, but besides a long gain of 20 yards, he mostly was a factor on underneath routes. Through three games, Atlanta's top wideout is yet to surpass 65 yards, but he's hauled in at least five passes each contest. After tying for fifth league-wide with 1,374 receiving yards last season, Ridley still hasn't enjoyed his breakout performance under new coach Arthur Smith, yet he remains a reliable option ahead of Week 4's matchup against Washington.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Finds end zone in Week 2 loss

    Calvin Ridley secured seven of 10 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Atlanta Falcons' 48-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.Ridley made his first 2021 trip to the end zone in the third quarter, hauling in a three-yard pass from Matt Ryan to close the Falcons' deficit to 11 points at the time. The Falcons' No. 1 wideout looked the part a bit more than during a pedestrian Week 1 effort, and he'll look to capitalize on a questionable Giants secondary in a Week 3 road battle.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Five grabs in Week 1 loss

    Calvin Ridley brought in five of eight targets for 51 yards in the Atlanta Falcons' 32-6 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.Ridley did pace the Falcons in receptions and receiving yards on the afternoon while also tying Kyle Pitts for the team lead in targets. Nevertheless, Ridley's final line has to be considered a fantasy disappointment in what was the Falcons' first game of the post-Julio Jones era. Time will tell whether Ridley is miscast as a No. 1 receiver, as it's difficult to draw any definitive conclusions from a game that got as out of hand in the second half as Sunday's did. The problem for Ridley and his offensive teammates is that matters could be even thornier Week 2, considering a road matchup against the Buccaneers awaits.

    Calvin Ridley is in uniform ahead of Sunday's preseason contest against the Browns, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.It's unclear if Ridley will make his exhibition debut, but Matt Ryan and Mike Davis also are dressed, meaning the Atlanta Falcons may be trotting out their first-team offense for spell in the first half.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Feels good early in camp

    Calvin Ridley is back at full strength and says his practice reps have been managed as part of a long-term plan, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.Ridley had minor foot surgery this spring and was held out of Atlanta's offseason program, but he doesn't appear to have any restrictions at camp, apart from the Atlanta Falcons limiting his reps in anticipation of a busy season. He put up 90-1,374-9 on 143 targets last year, and with Julio Jones now out of the picture, Ridley is among the favorites to lead the NFL in targets and receiving yards.
