Atlanta will be without another key offensive piece. Wide receiver Roddy White is inactive and will miss the first game of his nine-year career. His streak of playing in 133 consecutive games comes to an end. The Falcons will be starting Harry Douglas and Drew Davis at wideout this week. Running back Steven Jackson is out for the fourth game in a row with a hamstring issue. Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling will continue to split time in the backfield.
There aren't many surprises among the Buccaneers' inactives. Wide receiver Mike Williams is back after missing last week's game. Offensive guard Carl Nicks continues to deal with a staph infection and is out indefinitely.
Here is the complete inactive list:
WR Roddy White, RB Steven Jackson, LT Sam Baker, TE Chase Coffman, SS Kemal Ishmael, OL Harland Gunn, DT Travian Robertson
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
LG Carl Nicks, RB Jeff Demps, DT Derek Landri, CB Deveron Carr, WR Skye Dawson, OL Patrick Omameh, DE Steven Means
