In his quest to become 100 percent healthy from a high right ankle sprain, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White suffered a set back after playing extensively against New England.
He played his most action of the season against New England. He played 74 of 76 (97 percent) of the offensive snaps.
“Yeah, and I learned a very valuable lesson from that,” White said. “I ain’t where I need to be yet.”
Asked if he was 100 percent, White said, “I don’t know. I’ll tell you after the bye week.”
After taking some positive steps, it doesn't sound as if White will be much of a factor this week against the Jets. He should be benched until after the Falcons' Week 6 bye.
