Wide receivers Roddy White, Julio Jones and Devin Hester all suffered injuries against the Bucs on Sunday, though none of the damage is believed to be serious.
White, who has played through numerous ailments over the last few years, says he took a bad hit in the hip. The veteran wideout claims to be OK, however, and seemed to be in good spirits after the game. He finished the day with a touchdown and 72 receiving yards.

Hester, who dropped a surefire touchdown in the second quarter, hurt his ankle late in the contest and did not return. Despite his absence from the field, he was seen walking around without a limp after the game. A good sign, to say the least.
Prior to his exit, Hester racked up 104 kick return yards--including a 48-yard sprint, his longest as a Falcon.
Jones missed a few plays with an apparent leg injury, but was able to finish the contest with 119 receiving yards--his second highest total of the year. He should be just fine.
We'll continue to monitor the status of Atlanta's dinged up receivers as the week progresses. Thankfully, the team was able to escape this one (mostly) intact.
