(USA TODAY) -- Roddy White's consecutive-games streak is about to end, leaving the Atlanta Falcons even more short-handed on offense for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
White has been dealing with an ankle injury since the preseason and injured a hamstring in the Falcons' loss to the New York Jets. The bye wasn't enough time to get the veteran receiver healthy, so his 133-game streak - dating to the start of his NFL career in 2005 - will end Sunday.
The Falcons also will be without running back Steven Jackson for the fourth consecutive game because of a hamstring injury. They put receiver Julio Jones (foot) on injured reserve last week.
