FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and running back Steven Jackson remained sidelined during Friday's practice, the last day of preparation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

While Jackson seems more than likely to miss his fourth-straight game with a hamstring injury, White's status remains unclear. He apparently has missed all week of practice in the past yet still played in a game. Right now, White is nursing a hamstring injury as well as a high-ankle sprain.

White has played in 133 consecutive games, so his streak could be in jeopardy. Coach Mike Smith could address the injuries following Friday's practice.

Also sidelined during Friday's session were left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and tight end Chase Coffman (knee).

Linebacker Akeem Dent was in practice gear with a helmet for the second consecutive day coming off an ankle injury. Running back Jason Snelling has had full participation in practice this week coming off a concussion.
