Roddy White injury: Falcons WR expected to play vs. Patriots

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons will have both of their starting wide receivers on Sunday against the Patriots.

Falcons' wide receiver Roddy White will take the field in Week 4. The veteran will play against the Patriots on Sunday night, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

White will play through the pain of a high ankle sprain that has bothered him for several weeks. At 1-2, the Falcons will need all the help they can get against the Patriots and White's presence takes pressure off the NFL's leading receiver, Julio Jones. Despite playing in all three games this season, White has struggled with the injury and has only accumulated 56 receiving yards on just seven catches.

White has never missed a game in his nine seasons in the league and will have his game streak hit 132 on Sunday. He has also had at least 1,153 receiving yards in each of the last six seasons.

The Falcons will host the Patriots on Sunday Night at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
