White (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. White is being rested for the season finale because the Bills have locked up home-field advantage for the first round of the playoffs. Taron Johnson and Josh Norman should both see expanded roles in White's place.
White, who exited the Week 15 win over the Broncos with a neck injury, was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report. This is obviously good news for the Bills, who seem to have dodged a couple of bullets when arguably their best players on each side of the ball -- White on defense and Stefon Diggs on offense -- went down with injuries late in the blowout win against Denver. White could be rested on some level in Week 17 if the Bills can't improve their playoff positioning in the regular season's final week, though it appears he's ready for a full evening's worth of action Monday vs. the rival Patriots.
Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that White (shoulder) will participate in practice, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. The Bills won't release an official injury report until Thursday, so it's uncertain whether White will handle limited or full practice reps Wednesday. Of course, it's encouraging to see the star cornerback on the field in any capacity after he was forced out of last weekend's win over the Broncos due to a shoulder issue.
White is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Broncos due to a stinger. The 25-year-old suffered the injury during the fourth quarter and seems unlikely to retake the field with the Bills winning in blowout fashion. White had two solo tackles, one sack and two passes defensed before leaving the contest.
White (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. White's ankle injury forced him out late during last weekend's win over the Seahawks, but he resumed practicing in full Friday. All signs point to the star cornerback being a full-go for Sunday's tilt in Arizona, in which he'll likely face the task of holding DeAndre Hopkins in check.
