WR Roddy White to miss game for 1st time in career

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White will miss the first game of his nine-year career on Sunday.

The four-time Pro Bowl selection was one of three starters listed as out on Friday's injury report.

White, Atlanta's career-leading receiver, played the first five games with a right ankle injury, catching only 14 passes for 129 yards. He hurt his left hamstring in a Week 5 loss to the New York Jets and hasn't practiced since.

Atlanta (1-4) lost Pro Bowl wideout Julio Jones to season-ending foot surgery in the same game. Jones led the NFL in catches and ranked second in yards receiving at the time.

Running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) and left tackle Sam Baker (knee) will not play against Tampa Bay (0-5).

Starting middle linebacker Akeem Dent (knee) is questionable.
