ATLANTA (CBS46) — The Atlanta Falcons have announced that wide receiver Calvin Ridley will not be traveling to London this weekend for their game against the New York Jets.

Additionally, Russell Gage and Marlon Davidson also will not be at the game due to their respective ankle injuries.

The Falcons also placed nickelback Isaiah Oliver on injured reserve on Tuesday and Coach Arthur Smith confirmed he would miss the remainder of the season on Wednesday.

The team said Ridley will not be going because of a "personal matter," which they did not specify. However they did say that they "...are in support of Calvin at this time and will respect his privacy on the matter."

The team is set to leave for London today.
