Coach Mike Smith said White will be a game-time decision. But White, who was running individual drills at Friday's practice, sounded optimistic that he'll play.
"I felt good today,'' White said. "My first time getting out there [this week], so I wanted to test it out, see how it is. Doing well. Running some routes. Did some things that's in the game plan, so I felt real good out there."
White had never missed a game in his NFL career before Week 7, when his streak of 133 games came to an end. He suffered a high-ankle sprain during the preseason, then injured his hamstring in a Week 5 loss to the New York Jets.
The Falcons already are without top receiver Julio Jones, who underwent season-ending foot surgery.
In five games, White has 14 receptions for 129 yards with no touchdowns.
