White agreed Wednesday to convert a significant portion of his 2021 salary into a signing bonus, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Like a lot of teams, the Bills are up against it with a reduced salary cap this offseason, so honing in on the lucrative contract White signed at the beginning of last season really helps the team out in terms of signing a final free agent or two along with the incoming class of draft picks. The restructuring puts the Bills roughly $4 million under the cap, according to figures from Spotrac.
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.
White is listed as a limited practice participant Thursday due to an ankle injury.
White had to leave Sunday's win over Seattle late in the game, but he's starting to trend back up for the Week 10 contest in Arizona. Assuming he's able to go, he'll likely be tasked with keeping on eye on star receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
White (ankle) will not practice Wednesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
White was injured late in the Bills' win over Seattle on Sunday. Coach Sean McDermott earlier put his star cornerback in the "day-to-day" category, so we'll see how White's practice regimen shapes up the rest of the week. He's one of the few guys in the league capable of sticking with Arizona's dangerous DeAndre Hopkins.
White (ankle) was listed as questionable to return near the conclusion of Sunday's 44-34 win against the Seahawks.
Buffalo had to withstand Russell Wilson's fourth-quarter efforts without the one-time All-Pro available for a portion of the period, though the Bills were able to hold on for the impressive win. White had an interception, recovered a fumble and collected eight tackles prior to his exit, but now his practice status will be worth monitoring over the coming week as Buffalo prepares for another formidable NFC West opponent in the Cardinals.
White (back) is active for Sunday's game at the Jets.
We're going to guess the star corner isn't 100 percent given his game-time status all after missing one game and plenty of practice time lately. Still, White is as good as they come, so even while playing through the back issue his presence is a boost to Buffalo's struggling defense.
White (back) did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The back injury kept the star cornerback out of the Week 5 contest against the Titans while he played through it Monday against the Chiefs. After practicing fully Wednesday, it appears White's back is acting up again, leaving him as a true question mark for Sunday's game.
White (back) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.
After missing the Week 5 contest at Tennessee, White managed through the back injury last week before ultimately suiting up in Monday's game against the Chiefs, so it's too early to panic on his status for Week 7. Expect his practice availability throughout the week to shed more light on his chances to play Sunday. If the LSU product were to miss any more time, Taron Johnson would be in line for extra work at cornerback.
White (back) is active for Monday's game versus the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
White practiced without limitations Friday and Saturday and avoided a setback, so he'll gear up for a crucial AFC showdown. There's a good chance he shadows Tyreek Hill in this contest, and he'll have his hands full, as Hill has generated a 22-264-4 line through the first five games.
White (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs.
White has logged consecutive full workloads at practice to close out the week, so the Bills appear to be exercising caution with this questionable designation. Still, his final status is not likely to be confirmed until closer to game-time. Assuming White plays, the matchup between him and Kansas City's Tyreek Hill is one of the better ones you'll see this season.
White (back) practiced in full Friday, paving the way for him to suit up Monday against the Chiefs, Sal Capaccio of the Bills' official site reports.
White was inactive for just the second time in his career in last week's loss to the Titans, but the star cornerback is slated to return and try to slow down Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill. This difficult matchup will certainly test just how healthy White is, but his likely return represents a major boost for Buffalo's defense regardless.
White (back) is inactive for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.
White will miss the second game of his career after sitting out of every practice over the past week. This could be a bit of an issue for the Bills' secondary, which will also be without Levi Wallace (ankle), but it should help that the Titans' receiver corps is depleted behind A.J. Brown. White will aim to get healthy for a Week 6 matchup against the Chiefs.
White (back) was listed as a non-participant for Saturday's walkthrough practice and is questionable for Tuesday's game in Tennessee, the Bills official site reports.
White hasn't practiced at all this week, so his status for this week's game is truly up in the air. The one saving grace might be that the game has been moved to Tuesday, giving him an extra two-and-a-half days to get his back loosened up. He's one of the best three cornerbacks in the game, so his presence is important for a good Buffalo defense that's surprisingly struggled at times in 2020 so far.
White (back) was unable to practice for the second straight day Thursday.
A Wednesday absence is typically nothing to worry about for the Bills' veterans, but a second straight missed practice puts the stud corner's availability for Sunday's game very much in doubt. White is a great player who's well familiar with the Bills' system, so even a limited practice Friday would provide more confidence toward his Week 5 availability.
White (back) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
White had his practice reps limited last week due to a shoulder injury, but his current back issue appears to be a new development. The 25-year-old has lived up to his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the league through four games, so it would be a huge blow for Buffalo's secondary if he were to miss any time. It's worth noting, though, that White has played 100 percent of defensive snaps in back-to-back games, so the Bills could also be allowing him a bit of rest.
White posted eight tackles and one pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Through four games, the top corner has 13 tackles, four passes defensed and a fumble recovery. White did post six interceptions last season, but the problem is that teams continue to shy away from him because he's so good. That's probably not going to change, but White should be good for 50-plus tackles and a few interceptions once all is said and done, as he never leaves the field unless injured. Unfortunately, cornerback is the one position in fantasy football where the better you are, the less chance you have of racking up stats.
