ATLANTA (AP) - Roddy White is back in uniform for the Atlanta Falcons after missing the first three games of his nine-year career.

White played in 133 consecutive games before hamstring and ankle injuries ended the streak. White and Harry Douglas are the starting receivers Sunday against Seattle.

Falcons left tackle Sam Baker (knee) is inactive. Lamar Holmes moves back to left tackle. Atlanta defensive tackle Corey Peters (knee) is active.

Seattle is missing three starting offensive linemen. Right tackle Breno Giacomini, who had been listed as doubtful in his return from knee surgery, is inactive with center Max Unger (concussion). Tackle Russell Okung is on the short-term injured reserve list.

Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant (concussion), backup fullback Derrick Coleman (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jordan Hill (biceps) also are inactive.
