Flowery Branch, GA (Sports Network) - Atlanta Falcons wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones both participated in Friday's practice session, though both are listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the St. Louis Rams.

White, who sat out both Wednesday and Thursday's practices due to a sprained ankle that reduced his effectiveness in last Sunday's season-opening loss at New Orleans, returned to the field on a limited basis. Head coach Mike Smith told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution afterward that White would play against the Rams.

The veteran wideout also played through a questionable tag in last week's tilt, but managed just two catches totaling 19 yards.

Jones, meanwhile, was listed as limited for a second straight day with a knee injury that isn't believed to be serious.

The two receivers are among six Atlanta players to receive a questionable status for Sunday's game, along with cornerback Asante Samuel, defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, offensive tackle Sam Baker and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.

Samuel sat out the opener with a thigh problem but has been a limited practice participant throughout the week, as has Weatherspoon (knee).

Both Babineaux and Baker sat out the past two days' workouts with knee injuries before putting in limited work on Friday.
