White, already hampered through much of the season with a high ankle sprain, left in the fourth quarter of Monday's shocking 30-28 loss to the New York Jets with a pulled hamstring and did not return. Initial reports had him as a 50-50 shot to suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers, but it now seems as though that option has been ruled out.
On Tuesday, a Falcons team already reeling from an unexpected 1-4 start got news that Jones, the team's first round draft pick in 2011, could miss the rest of the 2013 season with a foot injury. Jones is scheduled to get a second opinion on Wednesday.
With both of their top-flight receivers grounded for at least the immediate future, it seems as though the Falcons' already flickering playoff hopes may be extinguished for good.
