Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy Whitetold the team's website he will play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

White missed last Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a hamstring injury. He said the abbreviated week between games prevented him from playing last week, but he said he will be ready to play in Week 4.

"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."

In two games this season, White has 10 catches for 114 yards and one touchdown. After not missing a game during the first eight games of his career, he has missed four since the start of last season.

The Falcons are 2-1 and will play the Vikings on the road this Sunday.
