Kevin White will look for his first regular-season receiving touchdown with the Cardinals. The tall, formerly fast wideout hopes to have some of Larry Fitzgerald's legendary game rub off on him while working in Kliff Kingsbury's aggressive passing offense. Until we see it, however, White isn't worthy of a Fantasy pick-up.
The Cardinals released White (hamstring) on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. White will at least head to the open market with his health intact, as Schefter notes that the receiver wasn't cut loose with an injury designation. With the regular season two weeks away, the No. 7 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft won't have much time to find a home elsewhere.
White (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Absent from the Cardinals' first two preseason games, White has missed half of his chances to make an impression among a crowded position group. With a week until the team's next exhibition -- Saturday, Aug. 24 in Minnesota -- he has plenty of time to ramp up his activity in order to get the all-clear for game action.
White (hamstring) won't suit up for the Cardinals' second preseason game Thursday versus the Raiders, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports. White is tending to a hamstring injury, which held him out of Thursday's exhibition opener against the Chargers. The absence effectively will wipe out half of his chances to make an impact in games before the regular season, hurting his case for one of likely six or seven wide receiver spots on the 53-man roster. In a corps composed of Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and three 2019 draftees, White has his work cut out for him for one of those jobs.
White didn't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Chargers due to a hamstring injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Coach Kliff Kingsbury indicated it was a minor issue and that White should be back "sooner than later." The 27-year-old played only five games during his first three years in Chicago due to a pair of fibula fractures and a broken collarbone, and he was largely a non-factor last season. White can't afford to be sidelined for long as he's fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster.
White made a good impressions throughout OTAs and minicamp, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. White's experience in an air raid offense at West Virginia is helping him pick up on Kliff Kingsbury's scheme in Arizona. The path to a spot on the 53-man roster nonetheless appears tricky, as Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler are locks at wide receiver. The Cardinals likely will have two jobs available for White, Trent Sherfield, KeeSean Johnson, Chad Williams, Damiere Byrd and Pharoh Cooper.
