Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle sprain) not practicing; could still start Sunday

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has a right ankle sprain and won't practice to start the week, but coach Dan Quinn stopped short of ruling Ryan out for Sunday's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

"He does have a sprained ankle,'' Quinn said Monday. "We'll be preparing both ways. If he can [play], that's great. And if he can't, then the bye would come at a good time for him next week. He's already in the pool running. You guys have been around him. He'll try anything he can.
