Roddy White caught 8-of-12 targets for 104 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.
He also ended up losing a critical fumble, however, leading to a four-yard Cam Newton rushing touchdown on the following play. After posting six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, White has now failed to top the mark in back-to-back years as he's battled numerous nagging injuries at 33 years old. His 2014 ends with 80 grabs for 921 yards and seven touchdowns. White is still a fine No. 2 receiver and WR3, but he's clearly on the downslope of his career. The Falcons just signed White a new four-year deal back in July, so he'll return for another season opposite Julio Jones. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 08:52:00 PM

He'll be in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Panthers.

Roddy White (ankle) returned to Falcons practice Thursday.

White will be good to go opposite Julio Jones in Sunday's NFC South title game against the Panthers.
Thu, Dec 25, 2014 02:52:00 PM

Roddy White caught 6-of-9 targets for 55 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

White dropped a longish catch that would have made his stat line look a little prettier, but the reality is White does not have a ton of juice left in his legs. He will have a decent matchup against the Panthers Week 17.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 04:23:00 PM

Roddy White (knee) is officially active for Week 16 against the Saints.

White's status was never in doubt after getting in a full session on Friday. He is a more of a WR3 with Julio Jones returning to the lineup.

Roddy White (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

He was officially limited. White was just taking a maintenance day Wednesday. The knee doesn't appear to be a real issue, but the 33-year-old's upside is capped by a lack of juice in his legs.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 11:52:00 AM

Roddy White (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a new injury for White, who played 57-of-60 snaps in Week 15. White will be a top-25 receiver play if Julio Jones (hip) doesn't return this week.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 01:55:00 PM

Roddy White caught seven passes for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

He was targeted 10 times, but still finished second on the team behind Harry Douglas (14) in the category with Julio Jones (hip) inactive. White worked mostly against CB Antwon Blake, who was filling in for Ike Taylor on Sunday. White's score came from four yards away in the fourth quarter. He'll be a WR2/3 next week against the Saints, whom he posted 6-72-1 against in the season opener.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:24:00 PM

Roddy White (ankle) remained limited on Thursday.

The Falcons are limiting White's reps after he escaped Monday's loss without setbacks. White has admitted he's not 100 percent, but played 63-of-67 snaps against the Packers. He'll be a target hog against the Steelers if Julio Jones (hip) can't suit up.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 04:12:00 PM

Roddy White (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It confirms White didn't have any setbacks in Monday night's loss. With Julio Jones up in the air for Week 15, he could see an increase in targets. White is on the WR2 radar against the Steelers.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 03:23:00 PM

Roddy White conceded he's not 100 percent healthy.

White has been battling an ankle issue the past few weeks, but played 63-of-67 snaps Monday night against the Packers. He'll be in the lineup for Week 15 against the Steelers, and the Falcons may have to lean on him even more if Julio Jones (hip) is unable to play. White will run most of his routes at the left cornerback, which will either be Ike Taylor or Antwon Blake on Sunday. The matchup doesn't get much tastier. White will be on the WR2 radar at the Georgia Dome.

Roddy White caught three passes for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 14 loss to the Packers.

Making his return from an ankle injury, White was targeted five times, while Julio Jones was just destroying the Packers' secondary for an 11-259-1 line on 17 targets. White didn't catch his touchdown until after Jones was forced from the game midway through the fourth quarter with a hip injury. White didn't appear 100 percent himself, but he should be fine for Week 15 against the Steelers. He projects to run most of his routes against LCB Ike Taylor, providing Taylor is healthy after hurting his knee Sunday. Taylor has been beaten like a drum the past two weeks.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 01:04:00 AM

Roddy White (ankle) is active for Monday night's Week 14 game against the Packers.

As expected. White is back in the lineup after sitting out Week 13. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a WR3, but at least the Falcons should be throwing the ball a lot Monday night. Inactive for the Falcons are CB Robert Alford (wrist), QB Sean Renfree, S Charles Godfrey, LB Tyler Starr, OT Jonathan Scott, DE Stansly Maponga, and LB Justin Anderson.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 07:02:00 PM

ESPN's Lisa Salters reported Roddy White (questionable, ankle) will be active on Monday Night Football against the Packers.

This was expected after Roddy practiced on Saturday and essentially guaranteed he will play at Lambeau. Salters also reported Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) will play on Monday night. The Packers are whopping 13-point favorites facing the Falcons. White will be a candidate for double-digit targets, particularly if Green Bay jumps out to an early-game lead.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 04:08:00 PM

Roddy White insisted Saturday there are no doubts about his status for Monday night's game at Lambeau.

White has previously instructed fantasy owners not to start him if he doesn't practice. But this week, he ran extensively on the side of Friday's practice and participated in Saturday's session. "I don't have any doubts," White said. "I'm just trying to get us a win, man. No doubts. The only doubt in my mind is the cold, man." The spot is difficult for an entire Falcons passing game that struggles outdoors, but White is a passable WR3. Just make sure you have Harry Douglas rostered in case Roddy has a setback.
