All-Pro wide receiver Roddy White, who led the league with 113 catches last season, has 39 catches for 425 yards and four touchdowns. He's on pace to catch 89 passes this season. With rookie sensation Julio Jones possibly returning, White believes he can pick up the pace. "I don't think I'm doing too well right now," White said. "Not what I expect out of myself. But everybody has to pick it up. I put a lot of pressure on myself to play well each and every week that I go out there. "I feel that at this point I haven't played really, really, really well in games. I just have to find ways to get better. That's my goal." While the rest of the Falcons were off during the bye week, wide receiver Julio Jones was at the office receiving treatment for his injured hamstring. The extra attention to his injury allowed him to return to practice with the rest of the team on Monday. He was limited, but could be available when the Falcons face the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. "It felt good today," Jones said. "I was limited. We are going to play it day-by-day out there. But today, with the little reps that I had, I felt great." Jones suffered a hamstring injury against Green Bay on Oct. 9. He didn't play in the subsequent games against Carolina and Detroit. White pronounced himself healthy for the stretch run, and there is hope that the Falcons' passing attack could turn lethal. "I got healthy," said White, who battled a knee injury after taking a helmet hit against Jacksonville during the exhibition season. "I can tell you that much." White believes he could have done more to protect his knee. "It's just always tough out there when they are cutting you and hitting you in the knees and stuff like that," White said. "That kind of prolongs your injuries. That's kind of been my problem, getting hit all of the time. I think I'm going to run out of bounds more. Get first downs and stay alive, keep the chains moving." The Falcons are averaging just 222.3 yards passing per game, which ranks 18th in the league. "On the passing game, as of this point, I think we are doing all right," White said. "There are a lot of things we can be doing better. We've missed a couple of plays here and there. That's kind of been our offense all year, up and down, up and down, we need a lot more consistency."
