The Falcons received some eery injury news when Kaleb McGary was placed on the PUP list, but it isn’t all bad for the first-team offense. Calvin Ridley, who had offseason foot surgery, was active at the first practice of training camp.

With Julio Jones now in Tennessee, the weight is all on Ridley’s shoulders. He’s the one proven wide receive on the roster and was voted a Second-Team All-Pro last season. Without Jones, many believe he could challenge for First-Team All-Pro honors and lead the league in receiving. But in order for that to happen, he has to stay healthy, so it’s nice to see him looking 100% with so much time remaining before Week 1.
