White, Jackson, Baker miss Falcons practice again
By The Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH -- Receiver Roddy White, running back Steven Jackson and offensive tackle Sam Baker missed another practice for the Atlanta Falcons.
White has been slowed since the preseason by a high ankle sprain, and his problems were compounded in the last game when he injured his hamstring. Jackson hasn't played since Week 2 because of a hamstring injury. Baker is recovering from a knee problem.
Backup tight end Chase Coffman also missed Thursday's rainy practice with an injured knee.
In a rare bit of good news for the banged-up Falcons, linebacker Akeem Dent returned to practice in a limited role. He is coming back from an ankle injury.
Atlanta (1-4) is mired in a three-game losing streak as it prepares to host winless Tampa Bay on Sunday.
