Coach Mike Smith says Ryan will need three to four weeks to recover from the injury, which was described as a sprained AC joint to the non-throwing shoulder. No surgery is required.

Ryan was hurt just after the two-minute warning. On a 5-yard pass that Jason Snelling took down to the San Francisco 10, linebacker Ahmad Brooks got a shot on the Atlanta quarterback. Ryan's next two passes were incomplete, sealing the 49ers' 28-24 victory.

Smith says Ryan would've played if the Falcons had beaten the 49ers and advanced to the Super Bowl in two weeks.
