Falcons receiver White expected to miss OTAs

By D. Orlando Ledbetter

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is not expected to be at organized team activities this week.

The Falcons held their second of 10 non-contact practices Tuesday morning without their star wide receiver.

His family is still mourning the death of his brother, Tyrone Moore Jr., who was shot to death last week in South Carolina. A funeral for Moorw was held Thursday.

White reportedly reamins in Charleston on Tuesday.

White, who hasn’t commented publicly on the murder, did send out a tweet on Sunday. He wrote to his followers: "I want to thank all my followers for the prayers for me and my family through this difficult time thanks so much #Familyfirst"

With teammate Julio Jones also out of camp - still nursing a foot injury suffered last season - Darius Johnson and Harry Douglas were the first-team wide receivers.
