Falcons’ Steven Jackson and Roddy White Both Out vs Bucs


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face an even more depleted Atlanta Falcons offense Sunday that will not only be without Julio Jones but also Roddy White and Steven Jackson.

Both Jackson and White were officially ruled out Friday in the Falcons final injury report.

Jackson has been battling a hamstring injury and missed all week of practice, while White injured his hamstring and ankle, which also forced him to miss practice all three days.

Tight end Chase Coffman (knee) and offensive tackle Sam Baker (knee) have also been ruled out.

Linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle) is listed as questionable, while running back Jason Snelling (concussion) is probable.

On the Bucs side, offensive guard Carl Nicks and running back/kick returner Jeff Demps are both out after undergoing surgery this week.

Wide receiver Mike Williams, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury the last few weeks and missed last week’s game, is questionable, as is defensive end Da’Quan Bowers (toe), and cornerback Michael Adams (knee).

Center Jeremy Zuttah (groin) and offensive guard Davin Joseph (knee) are both probable.
