Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan missed practice Tuesday because of a “personal matter,” according to the team.
Although the team noted in a statement that his absence was “non-injury related,” no further information is available.
It’s certainly nothing to worry about at this point. There’s more to life than football, and “personal matter” could be a family issue or any number of other everyday life events which would require his attention.
Ryan’s top target, wide receiver Julio Jones, also did not practice Tuesday, but the Falcons reported he is expected to go through workouts as the week goes on.
The Falcons play the Eagles at 4:35 p.m. ET Saturday in Philadelphia in the first game of the NFL’s divisional playoff round.
