Falcons' White still mourning loss of brother

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Roddy White promises to give his teammates the spotlight when the Atlanta Falcons star in HBO's ''Hard Knocks'' series during training camp.

For the opening day of minicamp, however, White was the star. And the director. And the reporter.

White ushered receiver Julio Jones into a swarm of media and took control of the scene, asking and answering questions.

After saying he was held out of Tuesday's drills for ''precautionary'' reasons, White asked Jones a question. He allowed time for a two-sentence response, and then proclaimed ''All right, back to Roddy!''

Sorry, Julio.

The humor is comfort for White following his most difficult season and a tragic offseason. His family was devastated when his younger brother, 21-year-old Tyrone Moore Jr., was shot and killed last month outside a South Carolina nightclub.
