Roddy White WR ATL 3 weeks ago

White was held out of Tuesday's practice for purposes of rest, the Falcons' official site reports.

Head coach Dan Quinn mostly followed the company line after practice, mentioning that White didn't participate so "nothing would flare up," according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. However, White was seen with a brace on his left knee, which afflicted the receiver at times last season. Preserving the 33-year-old for his 11th professional season is clearly a key to the Falcons' success in 2015, so don't be surprised if he's limited or kept on the sideline for the rest of this week's minicamp.

White caught 8-of-12 targets for 104 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Panthers.

White was about the only Falcons' player show up Sunday, as Carolina dominated from the onset to win the NFC South title. The veteran wideout finished under 1,000 yards receiving for the second straight season, although he was more productive and saw more volume this year, grabbing 80-of-125 targets for 921 yards and seven touchdowns. Even with Julio Jones around, White remains a reliable, albeit unspectacular option, especially in PPR formats.

White (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

White got a full practice under his belt Friday and should be close to full strength for Sunday's winner-take-all NFC South battle. Carolina's secondary has been playing very well, but White was able to rack up 75 yards and a score in their Week 11 meeting.

White (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

White's health has steadily improved throughout the week, and it appears he is good to go for Sunday's de facto NFC South title game against the Panthers. White tallied eight receptions, 75 yards, and a touchdown on 12 targets last time the Falcons square off against the Panthers in Week 11.

White (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice, the Falcons' official site reports.

After sitting out Wednesday, White's return included a cap in practice reps but ultimately lays the groundwork for active status Sunday against the Panthers, who have given up 12.3 YPC and two receiving touchdowns to wideouts in the past four contests.

White (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

It remains to be seen in what capacity White practiced, but his presence in drills forecasts active status for Sunday's game versus the Panthers. Expect his activity level to receive clarification in short order.

White (ankle) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

White joined No. 1 wide receiver Julio Jones (hip/oblique) on the sideline, but their absences were likely precautionary in nature. No matter, keep an eye on White as the week draws to a close to make sure he's available Sunday against a Panthers defense that has allowed 12.3 YPC and two touchdown grabs to wideouts in the past four contests.

White (knee) had six catches on a team-high nine targets for 55 yards during Sunday's win over New Orleans.

White has now failed to reach even 60 receiving yards in three consecutive games, though he did have touchdowns in the two games prior to Sunday's. The return of Julio Jones from a hip injury didn't diminish White's targets, as it was Harry Douglas who saw a bigger reduction in opportunities. Up next is a Week 17 matchup against the Panthers, with the winner taking home the NFC South title. White had eight catches on 12 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown at Carolina back in Week 11.

White (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints.

White was listed as probable for the game after practicing fully Friday, and he could take on big load against the Saints, as Julio Jones is active but still dealing with a hip injury that has kept him from practicing for the last two weeks.

White (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

White missed Wednesday's practice, but that was evidently just for rest purposes. He practiced Thursday and Friday, logging a full practice Friday. He's a strong fantasy wideout this week with Julio Jones (hip) highly questionable after sitting out all of this week's practices.
