Falcons White Still Not Practicing, Out Vs Panthers

Roddy_White_2013The Falcons haven’t ruled wide receiver Roddy White out for Week Nine’s game against the Panthers, but it’s looking like they’ll wind up doing it for the third straight week eventually.

Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports that White missed practice on Thursday, the second straight day he’s missed this week and it’s closing in on a month since he’s been on a football field at all.

The veteran wideout already played the first few weeks of the season on a severely sprained ankle and there’s not much reason to do the same with his injured hamstring now that the Falcons are 2-5 with their chances of a turnaround hindered by several other injuries on the roster.
