Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Fine to face Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Las Vegas, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Meanwhile, Julio Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable after missing Friday's practice. Ridley could see a couple extra targets if his teammate doesn't play, though his numbers have actually been a bit better in the games Jones has played this year.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) was listed as limited on Thursday's estimated injury report, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ridley's practice reps continue to be capped as he attempts to get over a mid-foot sprain, which sidelined him Week 9. He proceeded to suit up this past Sunday in New Orleans, hauling in five of nine passes for 90 yards in the process. Friday's injury report may clear up his availability for a Week 12 matchup with the Raiders.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Limited at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ridley sat out Week 9 due to a mid-foot sprain, but after Atlanta's ensuing bye, he reeled in five catches (on nine targets) for 90 yards in this past Sunday's loss at New Orleans. While the limitations on his reps Wednesday may have been maintenance-related, Ridley still has two more sessions to elevate to full activity before week's end.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Tops team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley caught five of his nine targets for 90 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Saints.

With Julio Jones hobbled for much of the contest because of a hamstring issue, Ridley contributed his highest receiving output since Week 5. The third-year receiver was inactive for Atlanta's win over the Broncos on Nov. 8, and he remained limited throughout the practice week entering Sunday. A 46-yard reception against the Saints mitigated concerns regarding his explosiveness coming off the injury. He benefitted from extra recuperation time with Atlanta taking its bye last week. Ridley has posted five different outings of 90-plus yards as the 3-7 Falcons prepare to host Las Vegas in Week 12.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Cleared for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) has been cleared from the injury report and will play in Sunday's game against the Saints, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Despite having his practice reps limited this week, Ridley avoided a designation on the final injury report. He should be ready for his usual role coming out of a bye week, hoping to pick up where he left off before he sprained his foot. Ridley is averaging 5.4 catches for 82.1 yards on 8.4 targets per game, with six touchdowns in eight appearances. It'll be a rarity for the Falcons to enter Sunday without any of Ridley, Julio Jones or Russell Gage listed as questionable/doubtful/out.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Activity limited again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

The Falcons capped Ridley's reps for the second practice in a row, but McFadden notes that any participation should be viewed as a good sign for the wideout's chances of playing through a sprained left foot Sunday in New Orleans. Ridley sat out the Falcons' Week 9 win over the Broncos with the injury before benefiting from a well-timed Week 10 bye.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Set for limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) will be a limited participant at practice Wednesday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Interim head coach Raheem Morris noted that he's hopeful that Ridley -- who last suited up Week 8 -- will take part in individual and team work Wednesday, but the wideout still isn't ready to practice fully, even after the Falcons' bye week. He'll look to progress to full activity in advance of Sunday's game against the Saints.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Works with trainer on side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) got work in with trainers on the side at Monday's practice, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Interim coach Raheem Morris said that he'll have a better idea of Ridley's availability for Week 11 on Wednesday, when the third-year wideout will be scheduled to get in some individual work. Ridley hasn't played since Week 8 due to a mid-foot sprain, but he's now had the Falcons' bye to get healthy and appears to have a shot at suiting up in New Orleans on Sunday.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Ridley didn't practice this week due to a mid-foot sprain, earning a questionable designation for Week 9. His availability was subject to a pregame workout, after which the Falcons opted to give him the week off with a bye on tap. In Ridley's absence, Atlanta's passing game will funnel through Julio Jones, with Russell Gage, Christian Blake and Olamide Zaccheaus in line for any targets that linger.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: May not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) will go through a pregame workout to determine his availability for Sunday's game against the Broncos, but the Falcons aren't optimistic he'll play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 25-year-old was unable to practice this week due to the foot issue and is officially labeled questionable, but it appears he hasn't progressed much since the release of Friday's injury report. Ridley was limited to 23 snaps last week in Carolina due to the injury, and if he's unable to play Christian Blake may receive the spot start. The Falcons have their bye in Week 10, so Ridley would be afforded an extra week to recover should he sit out Sunday.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Misses practice, but not ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Denver, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

While the Falcons will leave the door open for him to play Sunday, Ridley's inability to practice in any capacity throughout the week hints at an uphill battle to be active. The Falcons could take it down to a game-time decision ahead of their 1 p.m. ET kickoff, with Christian Blake on hand to fill in if Ridley can't give it a go. Blake played 54 percent of the offensive snaps in last week's win over Carolina, catching two passes for 14 yards on two targets. The Falcons have a bye coming Week 10.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: No practice again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) was held out of practice Thursday, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports.

Ridley has yet to practice this week due to the mid-foot sprain he suffered last Thursday at Carolina, but interim coach Raheem Morris noted Wednesday that the team received "good news" about the injury, per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. That hasn't resulted in any activity on the field, but Ridley does have one more practice to make his presence felt in advance of the weekend.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Day-to-day with foot sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) won't practice Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

On the plus side, interim head coach Raheem Morris relayed that Ridley has received "good news" about the mid-foot sprain he suffered in last week's win over the Panthers. For now, the wideout is viewed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game against the Broncos. If Ridley is sidelined for the contest, Morris relayed that Christian Blake would be the most likely candidate to fill in on three-receiver sets, according to Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Has mid-foot sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley has been diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ridley went down Thursday at Carolina, holding his left foot at the end of a catch. While he was able to walk off the field under his own power, he didn't return to the contest. An ensuing X-ray was returned negative, and an MRI also didn't "show much," so the wide receiver is considered day-to-day. With more time than normal to prepare for the Falcons' next game Nov. 8 against the Broncos, Ridley has a good chance to miss no more time due to injury.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Deemed day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (foot) is considered day-to-day after getting an MRI, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It seems the wideout got good news from both X-rays and an MRI, with the Falcons hoping to have him back for Week 9 against the Broncos. It'll help to have 10 days between games after a Thursday contest, but Ridley nonetheless figures to show up on the injury report next week. He was forced out of Thursday's win over Carolina after 23 snaps, catching three of four targets for 42 yards before his departure.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: X-rays return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (ankle) had X-rays come back negative Friday but now is scheduled to undergo an MRI, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The team announced the injury as an ankle issue after the 25-year-old exited Thursday's win over the Panthers, though Rapoport referred to it as a foot injury. Regardless, the X-ray results are good news, but Ridley's status remains up in the air while awaiting the results of an MRI.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (ankle) is ruled out to retake the field Thursday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ridley was initially listed as questionable to return after being forced out during the second quarter, but he was quickly ruled out after halftime. For the remainder of Thursday's contest, at least, Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Christian Blake and Brandon Powell will all be candidates to see an uptick in looks behind Julio Jones. Ridley had three catches for 42 yards on four targets before walking off under his own power.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Questionable to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (ankle) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Panthers, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ridley walked off the field under his own power after making a catch midway through the second quarter. If he's unable to return to Thursday's divisional matchup, Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Christian Blake and Brandon Powell will all be candidates to see increased opportunities behind No. 1 wideout Julio Jones. Before leaving the field, Ridley had three catches for 42 yards on four targets.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Leaves game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley exited Thursday's game against the Panthers in the second quarter due to an apparent left foot injury, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Ridley was briefly down on the field holding his left foot/ankle after making an intermediate catch, but he managed to walk off under his own power. He had secured three of four targets for 42 yards before exiting Thursday's contest. Russell Gage stands to see increased opportunities behind top wideout Julio Jones if Ridley can't return.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Scores another TD in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley hauled in five of his seven targets for 69 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Lions.

Ridley has endured a slight decrease from his astronomical yardage totals of Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 5, but he also has scored TDs in back-to-back games since Julio Jones returned to the fold. Ridley has now totaled six TDs through seven appearances this season, landing him one short of his total from the entire 2019 campaign. He's also on pace to obliterate standing career highs in receptions (64) and receiving yards (886), as he finds himself on a trajectory for more than 90 catches and 1,400 yards. New Orleans just carved into Carolina for 287 passing yards and three total touchdowns Sunday, meaning Atlanta's high-flying passing attack may be in line for a productive outing against the Panthers on Thursday night.
