Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said Tuesday that he will play against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night despite a knee injury.

White, who did not practice Monday or Tuesday, said that he sustained a bruised right knee during the first quarter of Sunday's 27-21 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

White walked around the locker room Tuesday without any noticeable limp.

On Sunday, White limped off the field, got treated on the sideline, then went back in the game. His return didn't last long, and he walked slowly to the locker room late in the first half.

After everyone had emerged from the tunnel for the second half, White finally came trotting back out. He made a couple of sharp cuts on the sideline to test the knee and later made a crucial catch for first down at the 1.

"I came down kind of funny," said White, who finished with four receptions for 49 yards. "(The medical staff) did some good things for me, put my brace and just see if I can go. I went out there and didn't feel much pain, so I kept going.
