Falcons Expect Roddy White to Play Monday

Falcons star WR Roddy White missed a couple of practices and a game last week, but now it appears he'll be fine come Monday.

Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith told ESPN.com yesterday White's anticipated to return this weekend when the Falcons visit the Packers at Lambeau Field, a contest which will likely have huge implications for both sides. The Packers are currently tied for the top spot in the NFC with the slumping Cardinals and red-hot Eagles, while the Falcons, despite being just 5-7, are looking to hang on to their lead in the south.

We'll see how much White's presence affects things when the competition kicks off, but keep in mind, the Falcons scored 28 points last week without him. Expect them to improve even more before making the trip to Green Bay, regardless of whether or not the scoreboard shows it.

At first, I didn't think much of his possible absence because they have a deep receiving group, but looking closer at stats this season, he does look like a key part of their offense. On the road, he's been targeted almost 10 times per game this season. He's still a valuable player.
