Ryan was in a walking boot after the loss to the Rams, Schefter said, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his ankle Monday. The Falcons have a bye in Week 9 so maybe they consider sitting Ryan out, esp. looking at a 1-6 record heading into Week 8. This is something to monitor.
With Rashaad Penny most likely starting the season on the PUP list and Chris Carson also coming off an injury, it appears Seattle felt the need to bring in some reinforcement to their backfield. Carlos Hyde posted 1,070 and six touchdowns with the Texans last year and will turn 30 years old at the start of the 2020 season.
