Matt Ryan probable after full practice
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Quarterback Matt Ryan is likely to start against Tampa Bay after fully participating in practice Friday for the first time this week.
Ryan, who is listed as probable, was limited during the last two days with a left knee injury.
Center Todd McClure expects to return on Sunday after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last month and missing the first two games.
The Falcons (1-1) have won five straight over Tampa Bay (1-1).
Ryan has been sacked nine times and taken 17 hits to start the season -- a loss at Chicago and a home victory against Philadelphia.
