The second-year Falcon posted a series of photos to his Instagram account on Monday with a caption revealing the news.

“Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes. I am doing well, unfortunately I’m out for the rest of the season, but I’ll be back next year ...Small thing to a Giant! #RiseUp”

Coach Dan Quinn confirmed the news when he met with media Monday afternoon.

Ridley had five catches for 76 yards and a touchdown in the game against Carolina.

The 26th pick in the 2018 draft, Ridley had 63 catches for 866 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns in 13 games this year (10 starts). He had already topped his yardage total from his rookie season and was a catch away from tying his mark from last year.
