Roddy White returns to practice

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, fresh off elbow surgery, returned to practice on Tuesday.

White, 33, had right elbow surgery on Aug. 24 after he was a surprise scratch from the second exhibition game against the New York Jets on Aug. 21.

While White returned, wide receiver/returner Devin Hester did not practice because of a toe injury.

White had his elbow heavily padded, but it was strong enough to throw and catch passes with Hester and wide receiver Julio Jones.

Fantasy Impact: 

As expected, White is set to play in the season-opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football at 7:10 p.m. at the Georgia Dome. White’s injury opened up a chance for young receivers Justin Hardy and Nick Williams to impress and make the 53-man roster. Leonard Hankerson started in White’s spot over the final three exhibition games. White was one of our veteran WRs to target around the mid-way point of drafts and owners should have him available for Week 1 it looks like.
