Flowery Branch, GA (Sports Network) - Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy
White did not practice for a third straight day on Friday, leaving his status
for Sunday's matchup against the New York Giants in question.
White, who has never missed a game over the course of his eight-year NFL
career, is dealing with a knee injury and was listed as questionable for
Atlanta's Week 15 tilt with the Giants.
"We're going to be very cautious with Roddy in terms of getting ready for the
ball game," Falcons head coach Mike Smith said earlier in the week. "But it's
hard to keep Roddy White out of a football game."
White wasn't hindered in Atlanta's last outing, with the veteran compiling
nine catches for 117 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss at Carolina. The
31-year-old currently ranks fourth in the NFC with 1,140 receiving yards and
has eclipsed the century mark in four of the Falcons' past six games.
Safety William Moore (hamstring) was also termed as questionable for this
weekend's test after sitting out a third straight practice as well. He did not
play in last week's clash with the Panthers.
Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux and wide receiver Harry Douglas also
received questionable tags due to rib injuries, though both were limited
participants in Friday's session, while cornerback Asante Samuel (shoulder) is
probable to play.
