• Still no practice for Steven Jackson, Roddy White

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated Oct 18, 2013
    According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Falcons will be without both wide receiver Roddy White and running back Steven Jackson this week against the Buccaneers. And the thing I’ll say about the Roddy White I know is every single morning he wakes up, he’s preparing to play on Sunday. I know Roddy. In fact, the four-time Pro Bowl pick hasn’t missed a game since his true freshman year at Alabama-Birmingham , when he played in nine of 11 games for the Blazers. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and running back Steven Jackson remained sidelined during Friday's practice, the last day of preparation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Also out are tackle Sam Baker , tight end Chase Coffman , and running back Steven Jackson . With receiver Julio Jones already on injured reserve, the pressure mounts on quarterback Matt Ryan to earn his big contract by helping the Falcons hold serve at home against the winless Bucs and avoid the basement of the NFC South. Roddy White and the Atlanta Falcons proceeded the right way this time: with caution. White previously expressed hope to return to 100 percent following last week's bye, but that was before the hamstring injury surfaced. The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver made his presence known every day this week by strolling through the locker room shirtless, wearing a stoic expression on his face. His limp is noticeable a product of the hamstring injury he suffered in the last game coupled with the high-ankle sprain he endured during the preseason.
