As the Falcons prepare to welcome their former starting quarterback to town, their current starting quarterback reportedly won’t be playing.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Ryan will miss Sunday’s game against Mike Vick and the Eagles due to a turf toe injury suffered against the Buccaneers.
Per Glazer, Ryan will consult with a Charlotte specialist regarding the extent of any ligament damage in his toe.
Without Ryan, Chris Redman will get the start.
Yeah, he’s still in the league. We were surprised by it, too.
UPDATE: Coach Mike Smith has confirmed that Ryan will miss the game.
