Falcon's Roddy White tells fantasy owners "don't start me" if he doesn't practice


Atlanta Falcon’s star receiver Roddy White admitted yesterday that he had a high-ankle sprain and would not be 100% for a while. On Monday, he sent out a warning to any fantasy football players that they should avoid starting him if he is unable to practice over the week.

  While White was certainly nice enough to worry about potential fantasy football owners—many players ignore fantasy all together—he did apparently draw a line when fans asked him to give injury updates before a game.

The Falcons lost their season opener in Week 1 to the New Orleans Saints 23-17 down in Louisiana, with White clearly limited by his injury. He finished with just two receptions for 19 yards. The Falcons return to Atlanta for a Wekk 2 contest against the Saint Louis Rams.
