AF_20201009_Practice_KD2_7858

For the second straight day, Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley was able to practice in a limited fashion. Any participation for Ridley, who is dealing with a foot injury, should be viewed as a good sign. Ridley missed Atlanta's last game against Denver, and it appears there's a chance that's the only game he misses.

What it means

The statuses of Drew Brees and Calvin Ridley are obviously the most important thing heading into Sunday. At this point, signs are pointing to Brees missing Sunday's game, which would leave Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill to man the quarterback position. Cameron Jordan, Ryan Ramczyk are also key players to keep an eye on for New Orleans heading into the weekend.
