Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was held out of practice on Thursday. It's the second day in a row he missed practices as he continues to deal with a high ankle sprain. It's unkonwn if he will be playing the St. Louis Rams this week.
White suffered the sprained ankle in the preseason. He initially downplayed the injury, but admitted after Sunday's game that it was worse than reported. He mostly served a decoy role in the loss to the Saints, getting just two receptions for 19 yards and playing in 37 snaps.
Fantasy impact: White has yet to miss a game in his nine-year career. He could be active on Sunday, if only to keep the streak alive, but he may end up playing a reduced role again as his ankle is slow to heal. It's not an ideal situation as he goes up against Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins this. White is one of the riskiest fantasy plays this week.
