Falcons’ White active, Saints’ Ivory out for MNF

Wide receiver Roddy White will be active for the Falcons’ Monday Night Football showdown with the New Orleans Saints.

White, who has started in every game this season for the Falcons, missed Thursday’s practice with a knee injury, but he fully participated in Friday and Saturday’s sessions and will be available for the game that could determine whether or not Atlanta possesses home-field advantage throughout the postseason.

Defensive starters linebacker Curtis Lofton (knee), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (shoulder) and defensive end John Abraham (groin) were all listed as questionable but are active.

For the Saints, rookie running back Chris Ivory, who has been bothered by a hamstring injury and was limited in practice this week, has been ruled out.
