White suffered the injury in an Aug. 15 preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, but the Falcons never classified it as a high ankle sprain. White caught only two passes for 19 yards in Atlanta's season opener.
White is a valuable fantasy commodity when healthy, but if the high ankle sprain continues to plague him, he could become tough to rely on. With Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez, the Falcons offense has plenty of other weapons. His absence affects Matt Ryan negatively as well.
Harry Douglas stepped up with White hobbled, catching four passes for 93 yards. The Atlanta offense will remain efficient without White, but he's proven to be a key part of keeping it running at its best.
