Falcons' Roddy White (elbow) participates fully in practice

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Aug. 24 to remove loose particles, was a full participant in Thursday's practice leading up to Monday night's season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

White returned to practice Monday with padding protection on the elbow.

Two other key offensive players, left tackle Jake Matthews and running back Devonta Freeman, were limited Thursday coming off their respective injuries. Matthews is coming off a back strain, and Freeman continues to work his way back from a hamstring strain suffered the first week of training camp.

Linebacker Joplo Bartu (quad) and rookie safety Robenson Therezie (groin) also were limited.

Wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester did not practice for the second time this week as he continues to recover from turf toe. Falcons coach Dan Quinn indicated Hester should be ready to play by Monday night. Outside linebacker

Cannot say that I am all that surprised, but it does make me feel better about Roddy seeing him participate fully. Sorry if someone posted something on it previously. I really wanna see Roddy come in and tear it up at least one last year.

It's still going to take him a while to get his elbow right. I had the same procedure done and it took 4 weeks for the swelling to go down and then another 4 weeks to get used to it all again. Hopefully he's effective this weekend. 3 wide set of Julio, Roddy and pen will be tough to cover

No offense, but you aren't a professional athlete with access to the best trainers and medicine money can buy. The situations aren't comparable.
