White (back) was released by the Jets from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday. White landed on IR earlier last week with a back injury. When healthy, he's free to sign elsewhere.
White (back) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of The News Tribune reports. White injured his back on the first day of training camp and hasn't practiced since. Unless he reaches an injury settlement with the Jets, he'll likely stay on IR through the end of the 2017 season.
White lined up with the first team during Monday's practice, while the coaches have told him he's in an "open competition" for a starting cornerback spot opposite Stephon Gilmore, The Buffalo News reports. Gilmore and Ronald Darby came into the season as one of the league's most formidable cornerback duos, but they've grossly disappointed at various times. It's Darby who's under fire from the coaching staff right now, after he got benched during the Week 9 loss to Seattle for getting toasted for a couple of big plays. We'll see who ends up the starter for this week's game against the Bengals and their weapon-heavy passing attack.
White (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. White's shoulder aliment seems to be behind him as he was able to practice in full Thursday. As a backup cornerback, he shouldn't receive many defensive snaps regardless of his health, but could play a significant role in special teams on Sunday against the Dolphins.
White (shoulder) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 6 tilt against the 49ers. White was limited in every practice this week by the same injury that prevented him from playing against the Rams last Sunday.
