Friday update: Breathe a sigh of relief Calvin Ridley fantasy backers, your top receiver returned to practice on Friday, per AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter. He was listed with an ankle injury on Thursday and was listed as limited on Friday. With this game being on Monday night, he is trending toward playing against the Packers in what should be a high-scoring affair.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley wasn’t at practice on Thursday due to an ankle injury. This is the Falcons first practice of the week, as they play the Packers on Monday Night Football, so there is time for him to get back and ready to go.

The good news for the Falcons is that Julio Jones returned to a limited practice, but they need both to take on a high-scoring Packers offense this Monday. Ridley has been phenomenal so far, as he leads all wide receivers in receiving yards and is tied with Tyler Lockett with four touchdown receptions.
