Roddy White Injury: Several Out Against Buccaneers

New, comments

Roddy White, Steven Jackson and Sam Baker have all been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

The news is not unexpected, but it's not welcome, either: neither Roddy White nor Steven Jackson will take the field against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Jackson has been battling a hamstring injury since week two, and White added a hamstring injury to the lingering high ankle sprain from preseason.

Left tackle Sam Baker and tight end Chase Coffman have also been ruled out for Sunday with knee injuries. Coffman has barely played, and Lamar Holmes looks much more adequate at left tackle than he did at right tackle.

Linebacker Akeem Dent was limited in practice on Friday, and is questionable for Sunday. Running back Jason Snelling has recovered from the concussion he suffered against the Jets, and is probable for Sunday.

Unfortunately, Roddy White's impressive streak of 133 games played has come to an end with this announcement. Sunday will mark the first time in White's career that he will miss a game due to injury.

How do you think these injuries will impact the Falcons against the Bucs?
