Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has fully recovered
from the sprained left AC shoulder joint he suffered against the San Francisco 49ers during the NFC Championship game, reports D. Orlando Ledbetter of The
Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters that Ryan has moved
past the rehab process and is now working out in the weight room.
“He’s been working in the training room and this week he
started working in the weight room,” Smith said. “He’s recovered and we
absolutely expect him to well beyond 100 percent when we start our offseason
Ryan sustained the injury on a five-year pass to running
back Jason Snelling, after which he was landed upon by 49ers linebacker Ahmad
Brooks. While he was able to remain in the game, his next two pass attempts
fell incomplete. Ryan was then seen with his arm in a sling the following day,
and the injury ultimately caused him to miss the Pro Bowl.
Ryan is entering the final year of his contract, but the Falcons have said that they plan on retaining the sixth-year player. The
27-year-old completed 68.6 percent of his passes last season while throwing for
4,719 yards and 32 touchdowns.
