Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White will not play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. White is dealing with both a high ankle sprain and a hamstring injury and did not participate in practice all week. He has a had a rough season thus far, electing to play through his injury to act as a decoy and keep his streak of 133 consecutive games played intact.
Now his streak of consecutive games missed will move to two. White's more serious injury is the hamstring; it's what has kept him out, as playing through a hamstring injury is much tougher than playing through an ankle injury. White joins Julio Jones -- who is out for the season -- on the inactive list.
Fantasy Impact: We've been advising fantasy owners to bench White since the beginning of the season. He hasn't been effective once this year, and it's due to his injuries and his decision to play through those injuries. Hopefully, you found a replacement -- Harry Douglas is performing nicely as the top receiver in Atlanta -- and it won't hurt you to leave White on the bench again this week.
He's out, so don't start him. He might not have been worth a start even if he did play.
