Falcons’ Ryan, Turner out vs. Saints

Falcons QB Matt Ryan is highly unlikely to start Sunday against the Saints, according to a league source.

Ryan is suffering from a toe injury and hasn’t been able to play or practice for the past two weeks. The team is heavily leaning toward not playing him, according to the source. The Falcons could be without two starting offensive linemen, LT Sam Baker and RG Harvey Dahl, and RB Michael Turner as well.

Barring a late change by the team, Ryan would sit out a second consecutive game as the toe heals and Chris Redman would start.

Update: Ryan, Turner and Dahl are inactive. Baker is active.
