I was moseying on over to Computertown to post an open thread via the digital interwebs when I caught a very reassuring message from Dan Quinn: Calvin Ridley is set to practice today after suffering a leg injury in yesterday’s practice. Given Ridley’s likely importance to the offense, that’s a very big deal, and it eases my overnight worries.

It looks like Takk McKinley will be held out, likely for a few days while he heals up, while Ty Sambrailo and Ito Smith will both miss today with ailments that hopefully are not anything serious.

Otherwise, it’s just a fun-filled practice day in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with about 60,000 fans expected to show up to check out the team in what passes for action in late July. I’ve embedded our Twitter feed below with some updates from practice, so follow along and enjoy.
