The New York Giants have a wide variety of injury problems headed into Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, but they are not alone. The Falcons, too, have injury issues, including that of wide receiver Roddy White who has missed three straight practices this week with a knee injury.
"We’re going to be very cautious with Roddy in terms of getting ready for the ball game,” Falcons head coach Mike Smith said on Thursday. “He will not probably do a whole lot [Friday] or Saturday, and then we’ll get him out there on Sunday and see where he’s at. But it’s hard to keep Roddy White out of a football game.”
White again sat out on Friday, and the team has officially listed him as questionable, although it's more realistic that he'll be a game-time decision.
White, as you might recall, has taken several shots at the Giants, and namely wide receiver Victor Cruz, since the 24-2 drubbing in the divisional round of the playoffs a year ago. Not only did he proclaim Cruz was in for a "rude awakening" this year, he also questioned Cruz's talent, saying "big boys play on the outside."
In the event White is unable to play, Harry Douglas, who has 29 receptions for 286 yards this season, will get the nod.
