Falcons injury report: Matt Ryan questionable vs. Seahawks


Falcons starting quarterback Matt Ryan saw his first practice action of the week and was officially listed as limited on the team's injury report, but his official status for Sunday is questionable. Coach Dan Quinn said the team would take another look at Ryan on Saturday to re-asses his readiness for Sunday, although it remains to be seen when the team will announce a decision.

"We'll have a sense for what that looks like tomorrow," Quinn said. "With Matt, we pushed it really hard with him today and we'll see how he responds overnight to go, but I think you have to push to find out. And that's what we did today. Grady [Jarrett] and Matt really worked hard to put themselves in that position to have a chance."

If Ryan is unable to play, the team will start Matt Schaub at quarterback and use Danny Etling as the primary backup. Jarrett also practiced in a limited fashion for the first time this week, but he is not listed on the official game report and presumable will be good to go. Quinn also said after Friday's practice that running back Ito Smith, left guard James Carpenter and cornerback Desmond Trufant have been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
