Roddy White WR ATL 10 Hrs
White (hamstring) did not practice on Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
We'll track White's status in the coming days, but given that he was believed to be close to playing against the Bucs this past Thursday, the wideout would appear to have a good chance to suit up against the Vikings this coming Sunday.

Speaking after Thursday's game, Falcons coach Mike Smith implied that White (hamstring) would have been able to play in Week 3 if the Falcons had a Sunday game, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Smith said that White was close to playing, which was already thought to be the case, given that the wideout seemingly came down to a game-time decision. Fantasy owners will still want to monitor the injury, but White looks like better than a 50-50 proposition for Week 4 against the Vikings. He'll have 10 days to get ready.

White (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
White's status meandered between will-he or won't-he suit up in advance of Thursday's game, but ultimately, the short week didn't afford enough time for the wideout to work out the kinks in his injured hamstring. His absence should result in a significant target count for Julio Jones (ankle), while Harry Douglas should experience the requisite uptick in looks from Matt Ryan.

Although Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reported Wednesday that something "dramatic" would have to occur for White to sit out Thursday against the Buccaneers, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports expects the wideout to be inactive.
White's status more or less remains 50-50 to suit up Thursday, but even though he didn't practice this week, his presence isn't required to achieve active status on a weekly basis due to his proficiency of the offense. In any case, owners should verify his availability prior to the 8:25 PM ET kickoff.

White (hamstring) is expected to suit up Thursday against the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
White didn't participate in practice this week, but the Falcons seem to be giving off an optimistic mindset, as Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com relayed that something "dramatic" will have to occur for the wide receiver to miss the game. However, owners should verify White's status in advance of Thursday's 8:25 PM ET kickoff.

White (hamstring), who didn't practice Wednesday, was listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
White didn't take part in any drills this week, which doesn't bode well for his ability to take the field Thursday. However, he hasn't been ruled out, opening the door for active status in Week 3. If he fails to play, Julio Jones (ankle) and Harry Douglas should dominate Matt Ryan's attention in the passing game.

White (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers.
White played through a knee ailment during last Sunday's game versus the Bengals, but apparently picked up a hamstring issue along the way. As a result, White has not practiced this week and enters the Falcons' divisional clash with the Buccaneers as questionable to play. Given that uncertainty, White's fantasy owners would be wise to monitor his status in advance of the early Week 3 kickoff Thursday night. Should White be ruled out, Harry Douglas would figure to have his role in the Falcons' offense expanded for the time being.

White (hamstring) is expected by coach Mike Smith to be able to play Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
White missed practice both Monday and Tuesday while resting his legs, but apparently is anticipated to be ready for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers. While news of coach Smith planning on having White available is certainly encouraging, the veteran wideout will probably be less than 100 percent, considering he's currently carrying minor hamstring and knee pains.

White (hamstring) is not participating in Tuesday's practice, ESPN reports.
White also sat out Monday's practice, as he rests his legs amid the Falcons' quick turnaround ahead of Thursday's Week 3 game. Carrying a slight knee ailment into Atlanta's loss over the weekend, White recorded five catches for 42 yards against the Bengals. Now, it's likely his absence from practice is merely for precautionary reasons, ensuring the 32-year-old is fit for Thursday night's divisional game versus the Buccaneers. Nonetheless, expect White's status to be updated as kickoff grows closer.

White did not practice Monday due to a hamstring injury, the teams' official site reports.
White hauled in five passes on eight targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and didn't appear to be hampered by an injury at that time. His absence Monday could just be for precautionary reasons, but if it turns into anything more, look for Harry Douglas and Devin Hester to have a bigger role in the offense behind frontman Julio Jones. White's presence in practice for the coming days should be a main indicator of his status for Thursday night, but considering the quick turnaround, the situation is surely worth monitoring heading into Week 3.
