After injuring his shoulder in the NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers, Matt Ryan has now reportedly fully recovered, ending any concern surrounding the Atlanta Falcons star quarterback. It was first speculated that he may need surgery to repair his sprained left AC joint, but simply resting for a few weeks helped him heal.

As Mike Smith told D. Orlando Ledbetter on Wednesday, "He's moved from the rehab part of it to working in the weight room, which is a good thing." Ryan would have played in the Super Bowl had the Falcons advanced, but the time off was beneficial to his recovery.
