White 'Ready to Roll' for Sunday vs. Vikings

Wide receiver Julio Jones has had plenty of time to recover from a hamstring injury that kept him out of last Thursday's 56-14 win over Tampa Bay and he said today that he's "ready to roll" for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

White, who was listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report, said the short week after injuring himself at inhibited his ability to be game-ready for the Tampa game.

"Yeah, yeah, I feel good," said White when asked if he feels good to play this weekend. "If I didn't, then I wouldn't be talking to y'all right now. But yeah, I feel good. It was kind of frustrating going out there and watching (vs. Tampa). Every time I watch a football game from the sideline, I'm kind of frustrated not being out there with my teammates, but I'm ready to roll."

Update (3:30 p.m. ET): White was listed as limited in Thursday's practice and head coach Mike Smith said he expects White will get more work in Friday's final practice of the week.

Prince Shembo was upgraded to full participation Thursday while Matt Ryan, Devin Hester and Devonta Freeman were also full.
