FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP)
-- Receiver Roddy White and defensive end John Abraham returned to practice Thursday for the Atlanta Falcons, but did not fully participate in the two-hour session.

White, who leads the NFL in catches and ranks second in yards receiving, missed practice Wednesday with a sore knee. He was initially injured in Atlanta's win over Tampa Bay three weeks ago.

White needs one catch to become the 12th NFL wideout with at least 80 receptions and 1,000 yards receiving in four straight seasons. He has not missed a game in his six-year career.

A groin injury prevented Abraham from playing in last week's win at St. Louis, ending a streak of 63 straight games that dated back to the second half of 2006.

The Falcons (8-2) host Green Bay (7-3) on Sunday. Both teams have won four straight.
