Roddy White to play against Vikings

Even without Roddy White the Falcons had no trouble blowing out the Buccaneers a week ago. The veteran wide receiver is nursing a hamstring injury but is expected to start against the Vikings this week.

Falcons head coach Mike Smith said that White “absolutely” would start.

White got in two limited practice sessions earlier this week.

Those with fantasy teams should be advised that the game will be played outside.

This year White has 10 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. White has five catches in each of his first two starts.
