Roddy White WR ATL 7 Days

White (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

White practiced all week, including a full practice Friday, so he should be at or near full strength. Going against a weak Pittsburgh secondary with Julio Jones (hip) highly questionable, White looks like a very good on-paper play this week.

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

White entered Monday's game in Green Bay with questionable status and merely one limited practice under his belt. However, he proceeded to play 63 of the Falcons' 67 offensive snaps, according to, en route to three catches (on five targets) for 42 yards and one touchdown. Afterward, he wouldn't place a percentage on the health of his left ankle, but since he was able to play, he said, "That means I'm 100 percent, and I'm ready to go." Expect a similar sentiment to result in active status Sunday against the Steelers.

White (ankle) caught 3-of-5 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 43-37 loss to the Packers.

While he wasn't visibly hobbled by his ankle injury, White was awfully quiet in a game dominated by Julio Jones, who posted a 11-259-1 receiving line on 17 targets, before exiting with a hip injury in the fourth quarter. White caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown after Jones' injury, meaning the veteran had just one catch for 12 yards through the game's first 53 minutes. It was reminiscent of Atlanta's contests from early last season, when White played through an ankle injury with limited effectiveness, while Jones put the passing game on his back. With both of the starting wideouts now banged up, the Atlanta offense bears close watching ahead of a Week 15 contest with the Steelers.

White (ankle) is listed as active for Monday's game against Green Bay, the Falcons' official site reports.

It remains to be seen how close to 100 percent White will be in his return to action Monday, but assuming his ankle holds up, he should see his share of targets in the Falcons' Week 14 offense, working in tandem with fellow WR Julio Jones, with Harry Douglas on hand to serve as the team's No. 3 wideout.

White (ankle) logged a limited practice Saturday but is questionable for Monday's game against Green Bay.

Coach Mike Smith has said all week that he thinks White will play Monday, and White's Saturday practice activity gives reason to start finding the statement believable. White is still a fantasy risk for Monday given his uncertainty and the generally tough matchup, but his outlook is at least slightly improved as of Saturday.

White (ankle) did not practice Friday, though coach Mike Smith said he remains confident that White will play against Green Bay on Monday.

The Falcons expected White to play last week, too, or at least said so publicly, and yet it didn't happen. We'd like to see White get into practice before getting our hopes too high. For what it's worth, White ran "extensively" on the side of Friday's practice.

Despite an earlier report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution indicating that White (ankle) returned to practice Friday, coach Mike Smith said that the wide receiver did some running but did not practice, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

White still has some time to recover before Monday night's matchup with the Packers, but this news is obviously less encouraging than practice participation would have been. Atlanta has one more practice (Saturday) before releasing the official injury designations for Monday's game.

White (ankle) returned to practice Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

After missing last week's game against the Cardinals, White sat out Thursday's practice as well, but he's back in action now and seems like he should be able to suit up Monday night against the Packers. The Falcons will release their official injury designations Saturday.

White (ankle) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of reports.

After failing to practice in any capacity last week, White was destined for inactive status this past Sunday versus the Cardinals. However, coach Mike Smith expects the wide receiver to return in Week 14, which would be supported by an appearance in drills. Fortunately for White, he has two more opportunities to take part before Monday's game in Green Bay.

Coach Mike Smith expects White (ankle) to be back in action this week.

Such a notion would of course be supported by the wideout's return to the practice field, after White registered three straight "did not practice" designations in advance of Week 13's game against the Cardinals.
