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.

White (knee) had five catches on eight targets for 42 yards Sunday against the Bengals.
The Falcons' offense really struggled Sunday, as Julio Jones was the only receiver to top White's 42. Jones is the clear No. 1 in Atlanta, but White is a very solid complement, and he'll look to grab his second touchdown of the season in Week 3 against the Bucs.

White (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Though he succumbed to a knee injury in Week 1, White turned in a full practice Thursday to eliminate most of the concerns about his availability for Sunday. He caught five passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 and should be a relatively safe play for this week's matchup.

White is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
White dinged his knee in Week 1 and was limited at practice a couple days this week, but given his designation, he should be good to go for Week 2.

White (knee) was spotted in full uniform at Friday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
It's not clear how much work White will get in Friday after being limited the last couple days, but it is a good sign that he is suited up. Expect an update on White's status when the Falcons release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.

White (knee) was again a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Regarding his schedule this week, White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Mike Smith "wants me to go out there on a Wednesday and do certain things, run around and get a little bit done, and then Thursday go out there and practice as hard as I can and then Friday be as fast as I can."
White aggravated his left knee at the completion of a 39-yard reception during the final drive before halftime in Week 1. After the injury, he gathered in two of his five receptions on the day, but for just 17 of his 72 receiving yards. He emerged from the game stating that he should have removed himself instead of sticking it out, further substantiating his worry surrounding the ailment. Although he's aiming for active status Sunday in Cincinnati, his status could become more clear by the release of Friday's injury report.

White was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The ailment wasn't evident immediately after Sunday's overtime win versus the Saints, but White has frequently battled knee concerns throughout his career. Aside from last year, when he missed three games due to a menagerie of injuries, the wideout was able to avoid the inactive list in his first eight NFL campaigns. No matter, his practice participation should be monitored closely as the week rolls along.

White caught five passes (seven targets) for 72 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's overtime win against New Orleans.
White looked like his usual self, after an injury-plagued 2013 season. He probably won't be as productive as Julio Jones, who looked fantastic Sunday, catching seven passes for 116 yards, but expect the veteran wide receiver to have a bounce-back year.

White caught three balls for 34 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
White will likely sit out the final preseason game Thursday, and it appears he'll enter the 2014 regular season with a clean bill of health. Injuries riddled his 2013 campaign, but White should be in line for a huge season if he can stay healthy. He'll lose targets to Julio Jones at times, but he'll also get the benefit of working against fewer double teams.
