Roddy White injury: Falcons WR says he expects to play Sunday


Atlanta's veteran receiver has been hampered with the injury bug all season, but he doesn't expect that to stop him from returning in Week 10.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White says he expects to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, according to's Vaughn McClure. White has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury after gutting out the first five games with a high ankle sprain. The ninth-year receiver hadn't missed a game in his career before this season.

Keepers Week 10

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Aaron Rodgers, finding a sub for Jamaal Charles and more.

White, 32, has just 14 catches for 129 yards this season. After six straight years with at least 1,000 yards, he would need to have an extremely productive second half of the year to meet that mark again. Last year, playing alongside Julio Jones, White had 92 catches for 1,351 yards, the third-highest mark of his career.

The Falcons have played the last three games without White or Jones, who is out for the year with a broken foot, and continue to struggle during their worst season under head coach Mike Smith. Atlanta is 2-6, and quarterback Matt Ryan has seven interceptions over the last two games. But, It's looking more and more likely that he will at least get back White for Week 10.
