Falcons Vs. Packers: Roddy White Expected To Work Full Practice Load

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith addressed Roddy White's status during today's post practice interview. Atlanta's Pro-Bowl wide receiver was limited during practice on Wednesday but Smith expects him to fully participate on Thursday. White has reportedly been battling the effects of a deep thigh bruise

"Roddy was limited participation today. He didn’t take his normal amount of reps but he did take a pretty good workload. We anticipate that he will take his normal reps tomorrow."

In four games this season, White has 26 catches for 302 yards and a touchdown. In last week's win over Seattle, White finished with six catches for 78 yards. The injury has slowed White in the early part of the season but rookie Julio Jones has picked up the slack by posting back-to-back 100 yard efforts.
