Arthur Smith revealed a bit of bad news today: Kaleb McGary‘s injury has no timetable for a return, which could prove detrimental to the offensive line and the offense as a whole. Still, there is some positive news that needs reporting regarding one of the Falcons’ best players… Calvin Ridley. The All-Pro receiver revealed he had been dealing with an extreme level of pain last season with his foot and that after offseason surgery, he feels “ten times better.”
Calvin Ridley tells @929TheGame this afternoon "My foot feels 10 times better than last year, I can tell you that. I was in pain last year. I'm fixed up now."

Said his foot is completely, totally fixed. Was rough for him last year.

Ridley’s presence in the offense is vital to its overall success, and though he might not be used to being held back, it’s for the team’s own good. Better to be safe than sorry in situations like these with such an important player.
