Fantasy Football News – According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White underwent an MRI on Wednesday and will be listed on the teams injury report when it is released later today.
FFLockerRoom Take – This is some unexpected news for White owners. Many were hoping to have their stud WR ready for the playoffs. It is unclear what ailment Roddy is suffering at this time so hopefully it’s just precautionary. Keep your eyes on the official injury reports and make sure to have a backup plan if he is questionable.
In the meantime, this helps owners of Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez and likely downgrades Matt Ryan a little. Roddy White is one of the leagues best receivers and would be missed greatly. I’m not sure if Julio is ready to be the #1 when all of the attention will be on him.
In really deep leagues, the next man up would probably be Harry Douglas. So I’ll just mention his name and move on.
UPDATE: Still no word on the severity of the injury or what his status is for week 15. We do know that Roddy did not participate in practice Wednesday. We might not get a hint till the injury designations come out on Friday.
