Falcons' Roddy White vows to play against Saints

By CHARLES ODUM

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Roddy White isn't promising he'll be 100% for the Falcons' opener at the Saints on Sunday.

White is guaranteeing he'll be on the field - just like every game of his career.

The streak of 128 consecutive games played - every regular-season game for eight seasons - appeared to be at risk when White sprained his left ankle in Atlanta's second preseason game at Baltimore. He was held out of the Falcons' last two preseason games and finally returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.

White, also limited on Thursday, says he doesn't spend much time thinking about the fact he's never missed a game.

He says he takes a simple approach: If there is an opportunity to play, then "just play."
