White (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, Eric D. Williams reports. White was one of three prominent Chargers linebackers to hit the injured list by the end of the season, prompting the team to largely utilize a bevy of secondary players in the front seven, particularly in the team's playoff win over the Ravens. While Denzel Perryman (knee) and Jatavis Brown (knee) project as the obvious candidates for the respective starting inside linebackers, White's above-average prowess in coverage should afford him plenty of snaps, as evidenced by the opening three games of his inaugural season in which he was on the field at least 70 percent of the time.
General manager Tom Telesco said White (knee) will "hopefully" be ready sometime during OTAs, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. White was limited to only three games last season after undergoing what was described as a minor knee procedure in early October. The Chargers like the 22-year-old's upside and expect to utilize him at all three linebacker positions in 2019.
White, who is still recovering from a regular-season knee injury, is expected to play at all three linebacker positions in 2019, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. That includes middle linebacker, which could be particularly enticing for IDP owners if Denzel Perryman, an unrestricted free agent, doesn't wind up returning to the Chargers. Either way, the versatile linebacker is expected to have an impact after a rookie season which saw White only record 17 tackles in three games before succumbing to the aforementioned knee injury.
The Chargers placed White (knee) on injured reserve Saturday. White hadn't seen game action since Week 3, as the recovery from minor knee surgery he underwent in early October apparently didn't go as planned, which brings his 2018 season to an early end. Uchenna Nwosu is currently the only outside linebacker on the roster besides starters Jatavis Brown and Kyle Emanuel.
White (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. White will miss his fifth consecutive game due to a lingering knee injury, and will continue to progress in his recovery from the surgical procedure he underwent in early October. The rookie fourth-round pick will focus his attention on Los Angeles' matchup against the Raiders in Week 10.
