Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions briefly with what appeared to be a left leg injury. Ryan walked off under his own power after initially looking like he was in serious pain. His ankle was stepped on by Will Svitek - one of his own offensive linemen - as he dropped back to pass in the third quarter. It was announced in the press box as a knee injury. Ryan headed to the tunnel and was replaced by Chris Redman, but he returned during the team's next offensive possession.
