White was released by the Vikings, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Minnesota has a deep secondary, but it's still a mild surprise he was released this early in training camp. White did miss part of training camp with an undisclosed injury.
The Panthers reached the NFL's 75-man limit Tuesday thanks to a series of moves, including placing star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin on the season-ending injured reserve list with a knee injury, per a team release. Carolina waived WR Jarrett Boykin, DT Kenny Horsley, S Robert Lester and WR De'Andre Presley, placed OT Davonte Wallace and CB Melvin White on the waived/injured list and reached an injury settlement with DT Micanor Regis.
The Panthers will have Philly Brown, Thomas DeCoud and Melvin White on Saturday against the Seahawks. All three players entered the game listed as questionable. Brown is dealing with a shoulder injury. DeCoud has a hamstring issue. White is battling an ankle injury. The team will also have Derek Anderson, Charles Johnson, DeAngelo Williams and Fernando Velasco for the contest. All four players came into the game listed as probable.
The Panthers have listed Star Lotulelei (foot) out for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Seahawks. Lotulelei suffered the injury last week against Arizona, and could be injured reserve-bound. Meanwhile, the other four players on Carolina's final injury report were deemed questionable. Those include safety Thomas DeCoud (hamstring), wide receiver Philly Brown (shoulder), linebacker A.J. Klein (ankle) and cornerback Melvin White (ankle).
Panthers backups cornerbacks Melvin White (ankle) and Thomas DeCoud (hamstring) said they both expect to play during Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Seahawks, according to The Charlotte Observer.
