Ridley caught four of six targets for 48 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Cardinals.
The second-year wideout is on one his characteristic touchdown outbursts, with four scoring catches over Atlanta's first six games of the 2019 campaign. Ridley accounted for an even more impressive six-touchdown run between Weeks 2 and 4 of last season en route to a 10-TD output by season's end. The upcoming matchup against the Rams is a promising one for Ridley to build upon his scoring total, as Los Angeles has surrendered two 100-yard receiving outings, as well as touchdown passes to seven different players over the past three weeks.
Ridley hauled in five of a team-high nine targets, collecting 88 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 53-32 loss to the Texans.
It's been the tale of two Ridleys through five weeks of the talented wideout's sophomore campaign: He has 60-plus receiving yards and a touchdown in three different games this season (Weeks 1, 2 and 5), but just a combined four catches for 38 yards in his other two. He's played at least 60 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps in every game thus far in 2019, with nearly eight targets per game if excluding his enigmatic one-target outing in Week 3. Ridley and the Falcons' receiving corps prepare to take on a Cardinals defense that has allowed multiple passing touchdowns in every game but one thus far this season.
Ridley caught three of six targets for 32 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Titans.
The 24-year-old Ridley jumped out to an electrifying start to his sophomore campaign with 12 catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns through Atlanta's first two games of the season, However, he's been targeted just seven times since, with three catches for 17 yards against Indianapolis and Tennessee the past two games outside of the 21-yard reception he recorded Sunday. Week 5 doesn't present the most encouraging matchup for Ridley to get back on track, as the Texans have allowed just one wideout -- Keenan Allen -- to exceed 75 receiving yards against them over the past three weeks.
Ridley (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Ridley was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday before closing out the week with a full session. He should be fine to handle his usual role, coming off receiving lines of 8-105-1 and 1-6-0 the past two weeks.
Ridley (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Though RIdley's reps were capped for the second day in a row, McClure relays that the wideout is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against the Titans while he manages a right hip injury that dates back to the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Eagles. Ridley proceeded to play 46 of Atlanta's 61 offensive snaps (75 percent) in the team's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis last weekend but drew just one target during the contest.
