Falcons receiver White returns to practice

Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White, who missed the last two games with hamstring and ankle injuries, is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Coach Mike Smith said White will be a game-time decision.  But White, who was running individual drills at Friday’s practice, sounded optimistic that he’ll play.

“I felt good today,” White said. “My first time getting out there (this week), so I wanted to test it out, see how it is. Doing well. Running some routes. Did some things that’s in the game plan. So, I felt real good out there.”

White had never missed a game in his NFL career before Week 7, when his streak of 133 games came to an end. He suffered a high-ankle sprain during the preseason, then injured his hamstring in a Week 5 loss to the New York Jets.

The Falcons already are without top receiver Julio Jones, who underwent season-ending foot surgery.  

In five games, White has 14 receptions for 129 yards with no touchdowns.
