Matt Ryan suffers bloody hand injury after being stepped on


Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan suffered a gruesome-looking hand injury against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

In the second quarter, Ryan fell to the ground following a pass attempt and had his left (non-throwing) hand stepped on by Panthers defensive end Morgan Fox.

The play left the quarterback with a bloody hand.


Despite the injury, Ryan stayed in the game. But, on his next passing attempt, he was picked off by linebacker Shaq Thompson.

Ryan, who would later put a glove on his left hand, finished the day 20 of 27 through the air for 146 yards, one touchdown and two picks as the Falcons lost 19-13.
