Roddy White Injury: Wide Receiver Still Sans Helmet at Practice

Otto Greule Jr

The injury report is picking up some steam.

The Falcons may head into Arizona healthier than they've been in weeks, which in this team's case is like going from leper colony to hey, a few of us have this weird disease.

Sam Baker is practicing and gunning to return. Steven Jackson is practicing and sounding a cautious if optimistic note, so he's at least making progress. Chase Coffman is back. Akeem Dent looks good to go. The three ongoing casualties appear to be Jason Snelling, Stephen Nicholas and Roddy White, who was on the practice field without a helmet.

This isn't the best news in the world, but it's improvement. This team is stronger with a healthy Akeem Dent, Steven Jackson would provide at least some kind of boost to the ground game (again, he's not certain to play) and Sam Baker's return is something. You know? Something.

It's still going to be an uphill battle without Roddy White against a tough Arizona secondary, but hopefully the Falcons have enough to come away with the win on Sunday.

Thoughts?
