Falcons' Matt Ryan: Returns in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (personal) practiced in full Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The reason for Ryan's absence Tuesday was explained as a personal matter by the organization, per McClure. Ryan wouldn't elaborate on the topic Wednesday, but his ability to log every practice rep returns the Falcons offense to status quo. Over the past four contests, including Saturday's wild-card win against the Rams, he's completed 62 percent of his passes, averaged nearly 259 yards per game and recorded four touchdowns versus one interception.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Back at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Ryan (personal) rejoined the team Wednesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

It's expected that Ryan, who missed the Falcons' first practice of the week Tuesday to attend to the personal matter, will be a full participant in Wednesday's session, given that he's not dealing with an injury. Since throwing three interceptions in the Falcons' Week 14 loss to the Saints, Ryan has bounced back nicely with a 4:1 TD:INT ratio, 62 percent completion rate and 7.3 yards per attempt over the past four contests, which includes Atlanta's wild-card win over the Rams last week.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Dealing with personal matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan missed Tuesday's practice due to a personal matter, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Although Ryan was at the Falcons' facilities for a portion of the day Tuesday, he left before he was able to take any practice reps, per McClure. Upon the release of the first injury report of the divisional round, a team spokesperson relayed Ryan "had an appointment" but wouldn't reveal the nature of it out of respect for the quarterback. There's a chance Ryan returns to drills Wednesday, but until he does, his status will be monitored with a watchful eye.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Tosses sealing touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan completed 21 of 30 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 26-13 win over the Rams.

Ryan almost did a split while setting and tossing a lollipop to Julio Jones on a flag route in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. Fortunately for Ryan, the ball landed perfectly in Jones' outstretched arms for an eight-yard score, putting Atlanta up by two touchdowns. Ryan has certainly taken a step back from his MVP ways in 2017, but a quiet, efficient playoff win is a positive for a quarterback that had as many interceptions as touchdowns in the season's final quarter. The Falcons, as the bottom seed, will head to Philly next week. The Eagles boast a top-five defense in terms of yardage and ranked ninth best in the league in opponent passer rating. Given that Philadelphia was also the league's top run defense, Ryan may be counted on to pave through the path of less resistance.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Leads team into postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan completed 28 of 45 passes for 317 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 22-10 win over the Panthers. He also rushed three times for 14 yards.

With the defending NFC champion's playoff lives on the line, Ryan came through with his fourth 300-yard effort of the campaign, and first since Week 12. The 10-year pro helped lead the Falcons downfield on a 10-play, 75-yard opening possession that he capped off with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Devonta Freeman. Although that would be his only passing score, Ryan was sharp while connecting with six different pass catchers. He'll head into an NFC wild-card showdown against the Rams next Saturday having notched a touchdown pass in four straight contests.
