News: White (hamstring) did not practice on Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 18, 2014
News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: White (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 18, 2014
News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 18, 2014
News: White was a surprise addition to Falcons' list of inactive players Thursday night against Tampa Bay. Impact: Falcons coach Mike Smith said two days ago that he was not concerned that White, a four-time Pro Bowl wideout, missed practice this week with a sore hamstring. White, injured last week in a 24-10 loss at Cincinnati, was listed as questionable Wednesday on the injury report. Harry Douglas started in White's spot. (STATS, 09:40am)
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: White (hamstring) is expected to suit up Thursday against the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: White (hamstring), who didn't practice Wednesday, was listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: White (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: White (hamstring) is expected by coach Mike Smith to be able to play Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: White missed practice both Monday and Tuesday while resting his legs, but apparently, he should be ready for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers. While news from coach Smith that White will be available is certainly encouraging, the veteran wideout will probably be less than 100 percent, considering he's currently carrying minor hamstring and knee pains.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: White (hamstring) is not participating in Tuesday's practice, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: White also sat out Monday's practice, which raises concerns over his status for Week 3, considering the quick turnaround before Thursday's divisional contest versus the Buccaneers. He carried a slight knee ailment into last weekend's loss, recording five catches for 42 yards against the Bengals. Now, he's nursing a fresh hamstring issue that apparently requires rest. With the game quickly approaching, it would be wise to monitor White's status before kickoff.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 15, 2014
News: White didn't practice Monday due to a hamstring injury. Impact: White, who hauled in five passes on eight targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, 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 (ankle). White's presence in practice in 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.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Sep 14, 2014
News: White caught five passes for 42 yards Sunday for the Falcons. Impact: White has been targeted 15 times while Julio Jones has been 22, if you are keeping score.(STATS, 11:17pm)
Sep 14, 2014
News: White (knee) had five catches on eight targets for 42 yards Sunday against the Bengals. Impact: The Falcons' offense really struggled Sunday, as Julio Jones was the only receiver to top White's 42 yards. Jones is the clear No. 1 WR 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.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: White (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: White is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Impact: White dinged his knee in Week 1 and was limited at practice a couple days this week, but should be good to go for Week 2.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: White (knee) was spotted in full uniform at Friday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: 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's suited up. Expect an update on White's status when the Falcons release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: 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." Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: White was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: 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, and this injury wasn't evident during Sunday's victory over New Orleans. No matter, his practice participation should be monitored closely as the week rolls along.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: White caught five passes on seven targets for 72 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's overtime win against New Orleans. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
