Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White to undergo procedure on elbow

Sunday August 23rd, 2015

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White will undergo an elbow procedure, coach Dan Quinn told reporters Sunday. 

According to reporter Andrew Hirsh, it will be a minor procedure and White is expected back for week one of the regular season. 

White suffered the elbow injury last week, and missed Atlanta's second preseason game against the New York Jets. White has swelling in the elbow, causing the need for the procedure.

White, 33, also had his knee drained during minicamp earlier this year.
