FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Following the Falcons’ 41-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had an X-ray done on his foot, but it came back “good to go,” according to head coach Dan Quinn.
Ryan was sacked six times against the Steelers and was under pressure for majority of the game. Quinn didn’t specify when the injury occurred.
Quinn also provided an updated on defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and his status for this week after missing Sunday’s game with a sprained ankle.
“With Grady, he’s pushing hard,” Quinn said. “We probably won’t know until Thursday in terms of if he has a realistic chance to make it this week.”
The Steelers (2-2-1) had success running the ball against the Falcons (1-4) with Jarrett -- one of the team’s best run defenders -- not in the lineup. Pittsburgh rushed for 131 yards, with 110 of them coming from running back James Conner.
The first injury report of the week comes out on Wednesday when the Falcons resume practice and get ready for a home matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
