FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. >> Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is back with the team after missing Tuesday’s practice to attend to an undisclosed personal matter.
Coach Dan Quinn says Ryan will participate in today’s practice for Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game at Philadelphia.
Ryan is expected to address his situation following the practice.
Quinn says there were “no setbacks for him or for us” due to Ryan missing Tuesday’s practice. He says Ryan was present for the team meeting and the discussion of the game plan, but then left before the practice.
The Falcons said Tuesday the absence from practice by Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP, was not injury related. Ryan hasn’t missed a game since Week 15 of 2009. Veteran backup Matt Schaub took Ryan’s place in practice on Tuesday.
