Roddy White injury: Falcons WR listed questionable vs. Seahawks

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Roddy White is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, despite assurances during the week that he would suit up for the Falcons.

Roddy White is listed as questionable on the Atlanta Falcons' injury report Friday. White has missed three straight games with a nagging hamstring injury, and could miss a fourth straight when the Falcons host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Head coach Mike Smith reiterated Friday that he believes White will suit up, however, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

White said Thursday that he expects to play, so it appears that the Falcons are being cautious or perhaps displaying a bit of gamesmanship. A "questionable" designation implies a 50-50 chance of playing, ostensibly, though reports throughout the week indicate that White is healthier than has been the last three weeks. He was a participant in practice every day this week, albeit in a limited fashion.

White's return, even if he isn't 100 percent, should give the Falcons' offense a much-needed boost. Harry Douglas has been acting as Matt Ryan's No. 1 wide receiver with White out, and opponents have been able to pay extra attention to defending tight end Tony Gonzalez. Ryan has thrown seven interceptions to two touchdowns passes over the last two weeks.

White had yet to miss a game in his career until this season. With 14 receptions for 129 yards and zero touchdowns through five games played, he is on pace for the worst season, statistically, of his career.
