| White, Jackson miss practice Wed. -- Wed Oct 16 6:00 pm --|
Atlanta stars still dealing with injuries after bye week
|Falcons running back Steven Jackson (hamstring), wide receiver Roddy White (left hamstring/right ankle), left tackle Sam Baker (left knee), linebacker Akeem Dent (sprained ankle) and tight end Chase Coffman (left knee) were listed on the team's official injury report and did not participate in practice on Wednesday. The Falcons were hopeful that Jackson, who suffered a hamstring injury on Sept. 15, might be ready after they returned from the bye week. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson's absence is concerning as it's now been 5 weeks since he injured his hamstring. And with Roddy White sitting on the sidelines, its likely the Falcons will line up Harry Douglas, Kevin Cone and Drew Davis at wide receiver on Sunday.

FF Today's Take: This is has been the speculation since yesterday. The Falcons will move forward with Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) Harry Douglas, Kevin Cone and Drew Davis as their top wideouts.

Could miss Week 7 with hamstring injury
|The injury-ravaged Atlanta Falcons are concerned that wide receiver Roddy White could miss at least one game because of a left hamstring injury, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

FF Today's Take: The Falcons have a bye this week so it's concerning that White's hamstring injury is serious enough that there's already talk of him sitting in Week 7. With Julio Jones likely out for an extended period of time, Harry Douglas, Drew Davis and Kevin Cone could be the top three receivers on the field for Atlanta in Week 7.
