White was listed as questionable for the game against Carolina with hamstring and ankle injuries, and was on the field with the team on Friday after missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday. The veteran receiver told reporters he expected to be a game-time decision, yet this latest report states that unless there's significant improvement in his health, White won't be able to play.
The ninth-year receiver injured his ankle in the preseason and attempted to "play through it" the first five weeks of the season before injuring his hamstring in Week 5 against the New York Jets. White has be noticeably limited when on the field, catching just 14 passes for 129 yards and no touchdowns this season.
The Falcons and Panthers kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Fox.
