White made a strong start to two games of the 2021 season. However, the team’s 3 against the Saints. He suffered the season-ending hip injury in the week’s game. The 30-year-old had tried to return this off-season after re-signing with the Patriots as a free agent, but he was limited during spring training and hadn’t taken the field in camp so far.
In eight NFL seasons, White has caught 381 passes, and that’s eight, the most by any player in Patriots history regardless of position. he has passed for 3,278 yards and 25 touchdowns. In four of his six full seasons, he was either first or second on the team in receptions. He was part of all three Super Bowl-winning teams in the second half of the Patriots dynasty.
With White officially out of the lineup, the Patriots have five backups on their roster, Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, J.J. Taylor and rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris. Stevenson and Strong will be the favourites to take over White’s old role. A wide forehead.
