Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been declared out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. White did not participate in any practice this week due to ankle and hamstring injuries.
White saw his streak of 133 consecutive games played snapped when he was listed as inactive for Week 7 so his streak of games missed will move to two.
White is the top receiver in Atlanta with Julio Jones out for the season. In his absence, Harry Douglas and tight end Tony Gonzalez will need to pick up the slack. White will try and get back in the lineup by Week 9.
The ankle injury came in the preseason, but White chose to play through the high ankle sprain to protect his streak. He was used a decoy, and was extremely ineffective. Instead of giving himself time to heal, he had several weeks of mediocre play and now he's missing the time anyway due to the hamstring injury.
Fantasy Impact: White isn't a player that fantasy owners should even consider starting until he shows something on the field. Even if he's declared good to go for Week 9, he could still be used as a decoy again, which would be a huge loss for fantasy owners. Douglas has a lot of upside this week as a replacement. Hopefully his owners went in that direction when Jones was injured.
