Falcons | Roddy White to be limited
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 11:09:11 -0800
The Atlanta Falcons plan to monitor WR Roddy White's (ankle, hamstring) workload for the remainder of the season, and head coach Mike Smith said White was capped out at 55 of the team's 58 offensive snaps in Week 10. He had only one catch for 20 yards and was thrown to four times. Smith doesn't plan on another receiver taking White's role as the No. 1 receiver unless he suffers a setback. However, Smith hinted that the limited snaps for White would at least carry over into Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I think when you start talking about 55 plays, an average game is usually somewhere between 65 and 70," Smith said. "I think Roddy will play as many plays as we can possible give him. That (55) was on the upper limit, by the way, in terms of the number of snaps that we anticipated him playing." White said he felt fine after the game.
White should see his PT increase through the remainder of the season if he continues to prove he's over his nagging injuries. Still, he'll be a weak play at wideout until we see those snaps go up significantly.
