Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is officially listed as questionable with hamstring and ankle injuries for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. On Friday, White told reported "with a smile" that he's a game-time decision for Sunday, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.
White missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but practiced with the team on Friday. There were no setbacks, but given his injuries this season, it's anybody's guess as to whether or not he actually plays. He's played in multiple games while injured this season, not allowing his high ankle sprain to heal and causing him to be ineffective. It took a second injury -- the hamstring -- to actually force him out of a game.
Not that his extra time helped him or anything -- White has just 14 receptions for 129 yards with no touchdowns on the season. Those aren't just poor numbers for him, they're poor numbers for anybody who saw the field as much as he did early in the season.
Fantasy Impact: White should not have the confidence of fantasy owners on Sunday. If, for some reason, you were heavily dependent on the Falcons's receivers and you are hurting without White, then you can probably start him for Sunday. Owners with a deeper team should keep White on the bench until he shows he's over his injuries and can actually play still.
