The Atlanta Falcons were playing the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Their star wide receiver Calvin Ridley was not playing.

During the game, the former Alabama star took to social media to explain his absence.

Ridley has 31 receptions on 52 targets for 281 yards and two touchdowns in five games in 2021.

The message comes on the same day FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer did an interview with Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson on his battle with mental health, anxiety and depression.
