QB (turf toe) held out of practice
Smith says the plan all week was for Ryan to participate only in Wednesday's early walk-through session as the team continues to treat the injury to his right big toe with caution.
Ryan returned after missing two games to lead the Falcons to a win at the New York Jets on Sunday. He had some soreness Monday but says he's feeling "a little better" each day.
Smith says Ryan may return to practice on Thursday as the Falcons prepare for this week's game against the Buffalo Bills.
