Report: Matt Ryan’s ankle injury not believed to be serious
Matt Ryan left the Atlanta Falcons’ 37-10 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday with an ankle injury suffered in the fourth quarter, but one report says the injury is not believed to be serious.
Ryan was in a walking boot after the game. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the injury is not believed to be serious.
Falcons’ QB Matt Ryan, who was in a walking boot after today’s loss to the Rams, is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his ankle Monday, but the team does not believe the injury is serious, per source.

The Falcons are 1-6 and not going anywhere this season except for the top of the 2020 draft. However, their already terrible season would only get worse if Ryan were hurt.
Ryan entered the game with over 2,000 yards passing and 15 touchdowns on the season. Matt Schaub, who went 6/6 for 65 yards and a touchdown, would see action as Atlanta’s backup if Ryan were to miss any time.
The Falcons host the Seahawks next week and then have a bye in Week 9 before returning to action in Week 10.
