Roddy White (hamstring) among inactives Thursday

Plenty of big names missed the Falcons56-14 blowout win in Atlanta on Thursday.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that running back Doug Martin and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy were inactive before the game. Tampa Bay had previously listed them as questionable on the injury report. The Atlanta Falcons also announced that wide receiver Roddy White was out.

The Bucs are among the most injured teams in the league. They lost starting defensive end Adrian Clayborn and cornerback Mike Jenkins for the season. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and linebacker Mason Foster are also injured. Bobby Rainey, coming off a monster game against St. Louis, will start at running back for the Buccaneers. Tampa did get some good injury news with the return of defensive end Michael Johnson to the lineup.

Fortunately for the Falcons, they didn't need White in the Georgia Dome on Thursday.
