Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is battling a high-ankle sprain according to ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

All the reports out of Atlanta did make it seem like Roddy White’s injury wasn’t that severe. Even though he was listed as questionable that didn’t throw up any red flags because he was listed as questionable multiple times last year without missing a game.

Roddy White himself even promised he would play on Sunday.

Nevertheless, playing Roddy White in your league seems risky. If he doesn play he’ll likely not get the usual workload because the Falcons have a plethora of weapons to work with including wide receiver Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez. The Falcons also added running back Steven Jackson to the roster in an effort to bolster their ground game.

Falcons and Saints kick off at 1 PM ET, so their inactives will be announced at roughly 11:30 AM. Stay tuned to

[UPDATE] 10:30 am:

According to Pro Football Talk:

A source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed these concerns to PFT, pegging the chances of White playing at 80-20 against.

Even if White plays, chances are he’ll be a decoy, with others doing the bulk of the significant running and catching.
