Roddy White misses practice again, should be benched by fantasy owners

Roddy White missed practice again on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Update: White's streak is over, as he'll miss Sunday's game, according to Jay Adams of the team's official website.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White missed practice on Friday, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN. We'll see what his official status is on the injury report later in the day, but it seems he'll either be questionable or doubtful. White is still dealing with a hamstring injury and a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the preseason.

There's much talk about White and his streak of having played in 133 consecutive games, the second longest streak among active wide receivers. That run is one of the reason's White is injured, as the receiver has admitted he should not have played through the injury -- even as a decoy to draw coverage from Julio Jones.

Of course, after admitting that, he still played through the injury again. Either way, White seems likely to play, if only for a snap to keep the streak alive. He will likely not be in on very many plays, as the injuries don't seem to be getting any better at this point.

Fantasy Impact: White has forced himself into being a bad fantasy receiver thus far this season. He might be 100-percent healthy right now had he not chosen to play in some of those other games. Either way, he's likely to be "active," but he absolutely should be riding the bench for the foreseeable future. Sorry, fantasy owners.
