Accedent might sideline R. White for TB game

Posted Nov 17, 2005

It's too early to tell if rookie receiver Roddy White will miss the Tampa Bay game after sustaining minor injuries to his hip, back and thigh.

White missed practice Wednesday, a day after he wrecked while driving to a nearby grocery store for an autograph session. The first-round draft pick was the only passenger in his truck, which skidded off the road near team headquarters.

An official with the Hall County Sheriff's Department said an accident report wouldn't be ready until Thursday, at the earliest.

Roddy White offered few details.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "I felt like I could have practiced today, but coach (Jim) Mora wanted me to rest."

Mora, who listed White as probable, indicated the former Alabama-Birmingham standout went to a nearby hospital to have X-rays taken and some tests run on his brain.

"His wheel got caught where the pavement comes off the dirt, and he skidded off," Mora said. "It shook him up a little bit, but he's OK."
