White (personal) rejoined the Patriots for practice Wednesday, Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican reports.

Damien Harris (finger) was also participating in practice for the first time during the regular season, joining White, Rex Burkhead, Sony Michel and J.J. Taylor to give the team five healthy running backs. White's role as the primary pass catcher seems secure, but everything else in the backfield appears up for grabs. Even White's usage on passing downs was disappointing in his lone appearance this season Week 1, when he was limited to a 30-percent snap share and three targets in a win over the Dolphins. However, the Patriots had 42 rush attempts and only 19 passes in that season opener against Miami, whereas the past two weeks saw Cam Newton featured more often as a passer (44 and 28 throws).
