Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White did not participate in the Falcons first mandatory minicamp Tuesday. He has a brace on his knee and it was a coach’s decision to keep White on the sideline. White has a brace on the same knee that he had drained last season. He also had some trouble with his hamstring last season.
The Falcons are down another receiver for the first day of minicamp. Devin Hester has been excused for a personal reason with his grandfather passing away Tuesday morning.
The Falcons #1 receiver Julio Jones was still present on the practice field Tuesday but is awaiting a contract extension.
Five starters have come back from injuries. William Moore with a shoulder injury. Jake Matthews and Jalen Collins both with foot injuries. Joe Hawley with a knee injury and Brooks Reed with a groin injury.
I’m excited to see the Falcons receiving group on the field together, they should be very explosive.
