After missing the team's trip to London, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley is reportedly returning to the team and practice this week.

Just shortly before Atlanta's Week 5 contest against the New York Jets, the team announced Ridley would not travel or play due to a personal matter. There's been no official word on the exact nature of this personal matter, however Ridley plans to return to the team ahead of Week 7.

Ridley is clearly the most important piece of Atlanta's offense, leading the team with 27 receptions on 42 targets. The exciting fourth-year pro has turned those 27 receptions into 255 receiving yards and 1 touchdown.

Atlanta sits at 2-3 on the year and readies for a Week 7 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Currently, the Falcons are 2.5-point road favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
