Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) played 63 of 67 offensive snaps in Week 14, and head coach Mike Smith conceded White is not 100 percent healthy. "Roddy is a guy that's going to fight through injury, and he was injured," Smith said. "He's had an ankle injury. He played, by the way, the most snaps of any wide receiver in the game (Monday) night. It's hard to keep him out."
Huddle Up: White is coming off a 3-42-1 performance on five targets and remains a solid WR option as long as he's suiting up.

Huddle Up: White is coming off his first missed game of the season but had 37 receptions for 409 yards and 3 TDs over his previous five contests. He could see a lot of work with the Falcons expected to be trying to keep up with the high-powered Pack.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 14 but fully expects to play in the game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: If White can't practice again Saturday, it would be wise to roll with another option Sunday with the Falcons not playing until Monday night. If you prefer to wait, though, pick up Harry Douglas or Packers' rookie Devante Adams if they're available.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) said he will not practice Thursday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: It's only the Falcons' first practice of the week with the team not playing until Monday night, but if White -- who sat out Week 13 -- can't get on the field or do much over the next couple days, start making plans to be without him for a second straight game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) is expected to play in Week 14, according to head coach Mike Smith, who said White's ankle sprain isn't as bad as the high ankle sprain he suffered last year.
Huddle Up: If White can't go, harry Douglas will get the start again. Douglas would be a flex option against Green Bay if White misses another game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: The Falcons have said they expect White to play Sunday, but it looks that will be determined in a game-time decision. It even gets murkier considering the Falcons have a late-afternoon kickoff this week so make your WR plans accordingly.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (head) passed an apparent concussion test in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was able to return to the game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he knows has been off to a slow start this season and will try to improve his play. 'I've gotten off to a really slow start,' White said. 'Not one of my favorable years that I'm having. But I've got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I'm a leader on this team, and I haven't been going out there and playing like Roddy White football. I've got to get back to just being myself - go out there and just cut it loose - and whatever happens, happens.' White has dropped three passes on 39 targets this season, which is tied for fourth most among receivers.
Huddle Up: Over the Falcons' last 4 games, White has hardly been startable, totalling only 9 receptions for 139 yards and a TD on 24 targets. Sunday would be a good time to start his turnaround facing a Ravens' D that has surrendered the seventh most fantasy points to opposing WRs.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) will start the Week 4 game Sunday, Sept. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith.
Huddle Up: White missed Atlanta's blowout win of the Bucs, with Julio Jones blowing up and Harry Douglas scoring in his absence. White's return won't necessarily diminish expectations for Jones, but Atlanta's tertiary receivers are less likely to offer fantasy help this week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) said he believes he is ready to play in the team's Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: White actually came close to playing in Week 3 but the short week wasn't in his favor. He's been limited in practices so far this week, but you'd figure the schedule -- i.e. extra rest -- will work in his favor this time around.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is working off to the side with trainers during practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: White was a game-time inactive and missed the Week 3 rout of the Bucs but is expected to return this Sunday against the Vikings given the extra rest he's received. He'll have to show more Thursday and Friday, however, so check his status.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: White is unable to go after a hamstring injury cropped up early in the week and kept him out of practice. In the meantime, it's bump up for Harry Douglas and Devin Hester and even TE Levine Toilolo complementing top target Julio Jones.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) isn't expected to be active for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, in the opinion of's Jason La Canfora.
Huddle Up: Other sources are starting to confirm this earlier report, but none are definitive. So it remains "likely" the Falcons sit White in tonight's game and roll with Harry Douglas and Devin Hester behind Julio Jones.

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 3 unless a dramatic occurrence happens between now and the game.
Huddle Up: White didn't practice all week and is officially listed as questionable for Thursday night's contest. Still, the concern for fantasy owners is that White plays but is used more as a decoy at something significantly less than 100 percent. Weigh this possibility when setting your WR lineup.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is not practicing Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: That's 2 missed practices in 2 days this week for White so things are starting to look somewhat sketchy for Thursday night's game against the Bucs. However, don't write off the veteran's chances just yet as this wouldn't be the first time he's missed practice and still played that week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White was listed as missing practice Monday, Sept. 15, due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: It's new issue for White, who has been dealing with a knee injury, and a short week for the Falcons, who host the Bucs on Thursday. See if White can get on the field Tuesday or Wednesday.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White signed a four-year extension with the team that will keep him under team control for the next five years, according to sources. White can earn up to $30 million in the deal with $18 million coming in the first two seasons and $10 million guaranteed overall, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Putting aside last season's injury-addled 63-711-3 disappointment, White got rewarded for his 6-year stretch of excellence from 2007-12 in which he averaged 94 catches, 1,296 yards and 8 TDs per season. Set to turn 33 in November, White is on the wrong side of 30, but definitely look for his 2014 numbers to be closer to his heyday figures than his 2013 stats.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White was arrested after a failure-to- appear warrant from a citation for 'non-transparent material on his windows.' He posted $168 bond and was released.
Huddle Up: In the grand scope of NFL off-field transgressions we've encountered over the past few seasons, illegal window tint isn't anything to waste any more discussion about so we won't.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he would like to play three or four more years as he gets closer to a contract extension. "How many more years? I think three or four," he said. 'I don't want to be an ironman like Tony [Gonzalez]. He was blessed to go through his stint in the NFL because 17 seasons is a long time to play football, man. I was thinking if I could just get 10, I'll be all right."
Huddle Up: After overcoming the ankle and hamstring injuries that hampered much of the season, White showed he definitely has plenty left, catching 43 passes for 502 yards and a pair of TDs over the Falcons' final 5 games.

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the team wants to sign WR Roddy White to a contract extension.
Huddle Up: Makes sense for the Falcons to want to lock down White, especially with Tony Gonzalez riding off into the sunset. A healthy White flashed some reminders of his considerable skill late in the season, and if Atlanta wants to continue with the White/Jones tandem they'll want to get Roddy taken care of early enough to start saving up for Julio.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White caught a season-high 12 passes for 141 yards and a TD Monday, Dec. 23 in a 34-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: White continued his late-season resurgence with his best performance of the year. He has 35 catches for 411 yards and a score over his last 4 games, after netting only 20 receptions, 209 yards and one TD over the season's first 12 weeks.
