While Atlanta Falcons
wide receiver Roddy White missed practice Wednesday due to a minor knee injury,
the dynamic wide out is expected to play Sunday when the team takes on the New
York Giants, reports D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
who adds that cornerback Asante Samuel was limited in his first practice in two
Pro Bowl wide receiver Roddy White suffered a minor knee
injury and was held out of practice on Wednesday.
Following practice, Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters
White was only dealing with a minor knee injury and that he the wide receiver
to return to practice today. He’s been Matt Ryan’s top target this season,
catching 77 passes for 1,140 yards and five touchdowns.
Samuel hasn’t been on the practice field since the Falcons
matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 29. The Pro Bowl corner has been
out since that contest while nursing a shoulder injury.
