Roddy White to play Week 1-- Thu Aug 29 2:30 pm --
Reports of high ankle sprain not true
Falcons HC Mike Smith said that a radio report stating that Roddy White suffered a more serious injury (high ankle) sprain was not accurate. He contended that White will be available for the season opener. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
FF Today's Take:Nothing to see here. Smith and GM Thomas Dimitroff have both denied that rumor. White's ankle did not appear to roll over severely at the time of the injury, he's never missed a game in his eight-year career and will have had more than three weeks of rest by the time the Falcons take the field in New Orleans in Week 1 against the Saints.
