Matt Ryan to miss Philadelphia game with injury



From NFL.com, just about ten minutes ago, and the Falcoholic about 20 minutes ago- Matt Ryan was diagnosed with turf toe after being injured on the first drive against the Buccaneers. Some thoughts and panic after the jump.

That's not a good sign. You can argue that Chris Redman is a good QB, and he does have starting experience. However, going into a must-win with a playoff-caliber team, that's not exactly a manage-the-game situation. Andy Reid subscribes to the vertical, pass up and down the field philosophy and he most likely won't shy away from it against the bad Falcons secondary. If Chris Redman can score, the load is relatively light, but considering the extent of Michael Turner's injury hasn't been revealed, you're asking for a guy who hasn't thrown 20 TDs in a nine-year career to be your big-time QB.
