Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was not on the field for the start of practice. His absence is not for an injury but to attend to a personal matter, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Ryan could make it back for a portion of practice, via Ledbetter.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn will update Ryan’s status at the end of practice.

The 2016 league MVP completed 21 of 30 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ victory over the Rams.

Sports books have Atlanta as a three-point favorite over Philadelphia. It marks the first time a No. 6 seed has entered a game against the No. 1 seed as the favorite.

  1. Why is Ryan’s presence, or lack thereof, at practice, any business of the media’s?
    Is Ryan somehow accountable to the media? If so, why?
    Whom is the media accountable to, if anybody? Well there is multi-billionaire George Soros…but I digress…
    Matt, you go do whatever you have to do and just ignore those “reporters” or “pseudo-journalists”. Besides they’ll make something up anyway.

    Because the NFL is in the entertainment business and they need media coverage to remain profitable.
