    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Eyeing third-year breakout

    Calvin Ridley (abdomen) has been working out with Matt Ryan, who believes the young wideout "could explode" in his third pro season, AL.com's Mark Inabinett reports. "He's a guy I think could explode going into a year like this," Ryan said. "He's in phenomenal shape, he's been running great and I think his grasp of the offense and his mastery of our system is so much further along than it was last year."Ridley missed the final three games of last season with an abdominal injury, but the estimated recovery timeline of only 3-to-4 weeks allowed for a healthy offseason. He piled up 395 yards and three TDs in his final four appearances last year, potentially setting the stage for a 2020 breakout. Ryan seems to be on board with the idea, noting that Ridley should benefit from his recent on-field workouts with the veteran quarterback and other teammates. Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter also expects Ridley to improve in Year 3, mentioning route running as a potential area for continued growth.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Should need short-term recovery

    Coach Dan Quinn confirmed Monday that Calvin Ridley would be shut down for the season with a lower abdominal injury, but the receiver is only expected to need around 3-to-4 weeks of recovery time, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.Ridley likely would have attempted to return in 2019 if the Atlanta Falcons were still in the mix for a playoff spot, but with a 4-9 record heading into Week 15, Atlanta won't take any chances with him. Quinn suggested that Christian Blake and Olamide Zaccheaus would be the primary beneficiaries of added snaps while Ridley is out, according to Butt. Based on Ridley's recovery timeline, he should enjoy a normal offseason and be back to full strength when the Falcons reconvene for OTAs.

    Calvin Ridley (abdomen) won't return to Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.Initially questionable to reenter the game due to discomfort in his abdomen, Ridley will finish the day with five receptions (on five targets) for 76 yards and one touchdown.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Puts in limited session

    Calvin Ridley (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.Like fellow starting wideout Julio Jones (shoulder), Ridley's practice reps were capped for the second day in a row, making the Atlanta Falcons' final session of the week Friday important with regard to both players' statuses for Sunday's game versus Carolina. Considering Jones was inactive in the Falcons' 26-18 loss to New Orleans while Ridley hauled in eight balls for 91 yards in the contest, the latter receiver is probably at less risk of sitting out Week 14.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Tending to toe injury

    Calvin Ridley was limited by a toe injury during Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.Ridley is matching Julio Jones' (shoulder) activity level, but at least both wide receivers are participating Wednesday in some capacity, which helps their cases for suiting up on game day. Working as the top wideout in Jones' absence last Thursday against the Saints, Ridley hauled in eight of 10 targets for 91 yards.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Steps up in Jones' absence

    Calvin Ridley corralled eight of 10 targets for 91 receiving yards during Thursday's 26-18 loss to New Orleans.The second-year wideout has been electrifying over Atlanta's past three games, compiling 22 receptions for 319 yards and two touchdowns against the Panthers, Buccaneers and Saints. Mohamed Sanu's trade to New England and Austin Hooper's injury (knee-MCL) have led to an uptick in offensive opportunity for Ridley, but in Julio Jones' absence (shoulder) Thanksgiving night, the 24-year-old emerged as Atlanta's No. 1 option in the team's passing game. The former Crimson Tide standout didn't disappoint, leading both sides in targets, receptions and receiving yards. Ridley remains a strong play in Week 14, taking on a Panthers defense against which he amassed eight catches, 141 yards and a touchdown Nov. 17.
