Roddy White injury: Falcons WR could miss time with hamstring pull

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The hits just keep on coming in Atlanta.

Less than 24 hours after news broke that Julio Jones may be done for the season, the Atlanta Falcons got even more bad news Wednesday morning.

Wide receiver Roddy White could miss at least one game and possibly more with a hamstring injury he suffered in the Falcons' loss on Monday night, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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.
