Atlanta Falcons rookie offensive tackle Jake Matthews will not play in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a left ankle injury, the Falcons announced.

Matthews injured his left ankle in the first half of last Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints. An MRI scan on the ankle came up negative.
