The Atlanta Falcons have a stinging feeling this morning after suffering their loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but the stinging sensation in Matt Ryan‘s shoulder is from something else. The Falcons quarterback suffered a sprained AC joint injury on his non-throwing shoulder. After being slammed to the turf by Niners defender Ahmad Brooks.
Reports suggest that Ryan popped his shoulder back into place during the game but as the game progressed, it was obvious that he was in significant pain. Reports differ as to whether or not he will undergo an MRI this morning and he’s likely not going to be required to have surgery in the offseason.
Had the Falcons won, it’s questionable as to whether or not Ryan would have been able to go in the big game.
