Falcons say QB Matt Ryan (ankle) will start vs. Saints

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will play Sunday at New Orleans coming off a sprained right ankle, coach Dan Quinn said Friday.

Ryan practiced all week and had extra time to recover during last week's bye. Before the bye he missed his first game since the 2009 season when he was inactive for a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan had made 154 consecutive starts before his streak was broken.

Quinn talked about what he has seen from Ryan this week coming off the injury.
