"Right now, our goal is to have Roddy as healthy as he can be for the ball game on Thursday night," Smith said.
Barring a setback, expect White to see the field against the Bucs. How effective he'll be at less than 100 percent remains to be seen.
Here are some other injury updates from around the NFL:
» The Buccaneers have listed many key contributors as questionable to play Thursday against the Falcons. Running back Doug Martin (knee) and defensive end Michael Johnson (ankle) both missed Sunday's loss to the Rams and their status is up in the air for TNF. Gerald McCoy broke his hand against the Rams but is questionable as he does everything he can to work himself back. Promising rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) is out for Thursday.
