White caught one ball for 10 yards in the season finale against the Saints. White caught 43 balls for 506 yards and a touchdown in 2015, by far his worst statistical season in years. He was held under 50 catches for the first time since 2006, and he's not getting any younger. White is still under contract for two more years, but Justin Hardy could push him for more playing time in 2016. White's best days are behind him, but if he can stay healthy and the offense gets another year under their belt with Kyle Shanahan, it wouldn't be surprising to see White build on a disappointing year in 2016.
White (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Saints. White has rankled owners all season, scoring just one touchdown and otherwise topping out at 84 receiving yards in Week 1. However, he could make amends against a New Orleans defense that has conceded 12.0 YPC but 12 scores through the air to opposing wideouts over the last five games.
White (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints. White logged a full practice Friday, setting him up for usual role in the regular-season finale. Despite catching at least three passes in six consecutive games, he still hasn't reached 70 receiving yards since Week 1.
White (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Following a DNP on Wednesday, White tested out his ankle in individual drills Thursday, but the final practice report of the week will announce his status for Sunday's game against the Saints.
White (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. White's Week 1 line still stands as the high-water mark of the season -- four catches for 84 yards on eight targets -- but the veteran has fared reasonably well over the last five games, totaling 21 receptions (on 27 targets) for 242 yards. Ankle injuries have been a recurring theme of the past three seasons, but his progress (or lack thereof) as the week continues will forecast whether he's trending toward an appearance in Week 17.
