Chargers' Kyzir White: Interception in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White recorded two tackles (one solo), an interception and a pass defensed across 34 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

White injected life into the Chargers for a brief moment in the third quarter, intercepting a Joe Flacco pass and setting up the Bolts with a 1st-and-goal situation. After only playing in a combined 20 snaps over the past two games, White saw a major jump in productivity Sunday. Whether he sees as much playing time this week against the Steelers remains to be seen.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Records nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White posted nine tackles (eight solo) and a tackle for a loss in the win Sunday over the Colts.

White and linebacker Thomas Davis easily outpaced their positional colleagues in terms of snaps, with the only other linebacker to see playing time on defense, Uchenna Nwosu, registering 14 snaps. This shouldn't come as a surprise to those that watched the second-year linebacker perform last season, as White picked up 17 tackles in just three games his rookie year before a season-ending knee injury in Week 4. White's abilities as a coverage linebacker should afford him plenty of time on the field even when the Chargers transition to dime and quarter personnel, something that frequently occurred Sunday, but he's still a clear rung behind the veteran Davis, who played all 63 snaps in the win.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Makes return in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) picked up one tackle in the team's preseason loss Saturday to the Seahawks.

White will likely split time with Jatavis Brown, Thomas Davis and even safety Adrian Phillips throughout a given game, but the second-year linebacker did play 20 snaps in Saturday's preseason contest so he'll clearly still be a factor defensively. A superb coverage linebacker, White might cede time to Davis on early downs, but his expertise in obvious passing situations might create opportunities for tackles. He'll need to prove it on a consistent basis before garnering any sort of shallow IDP-league interest, but the opportunity could be there for White, who had recorded 17 tackles in three games before a season-ending injury ruined his rookie campaign.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Likely ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Could be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Kyzir White: In contention for multiple linebacker spots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Unlikely to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) is eligible to come off injured reserved but is unlikely to be activated, Eric D. Williams of reports.

White could rejoin the team in advance or during a potential playoff run, but he apparently needs more time to recover from October's knee surgery. The surgery was originally described as minor and wasn't expected to sideline the 22-year-old for long, but it looks as though the rookie linebacker will finish 2018 with 17 combined tackles and an interception in three games.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Likely to sit out Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) is considered unlikely to play Sunday at Seattle, Eric D. Williams of reports.

White hasn't seen game action since Week 3 and is still recovering from a minor knee surgery he required in early October. With the 22-year-old opening Week 9 preparations as a non-participant in practice, he'll need to demonstrate significant progress in the next two days to have any shot of playing Sunday.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans in London.

White underwent minor knee surgery in early October and has yet to return to practice. The 22-year-old will have the Chargers' bye week to recover and hopefully return for the Week 9 game at Seattle.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Won't return Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

White underwent minor knee surgery at the start of October, but he isn't expected to require an extended absence. The 22-year-old did not practice this week, but he'll hopefully make some more progress before Week 7.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Undergoes minor surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) underwent minor knee surgery and will not play in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Eric Williams of reports.

Head coach Anthony Lynn noted that while the rookie will miss his second straight contest, White should be back on the field sooner rather than later. In his absence, look for Jatavis Brown to continue to see increased reps on defense.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Sidelined for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

White injured his knee in Thursday's practice and was unable to return to the field for Friday's session. The severity of his situation is yet to be determined. White's absence opens a window for Uchenna Nwosu to see an uptick in playing time.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) did not practice Thursday.

White popping up on the Chargers' injury report is a surprise, given that the rookie carried no injury designation while participating in Wednesday's practice. The severity of White's injury remains undisclosed, but expect an update on the rotational linebacker's health if he's unable to return to practice at some point during the week.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Solid performance despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White registered seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 35-23 loss at the hands of the Rams.

Despite a draft class featuring standout safety Derwin James and pass-rushing fiend Uchenna Nwosu, White has quietly established himself as the team's second-best pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. The fourth-round selection only played in 78 percent of the snaps Sunday, but White's coverage abilities were evident every time he took the field, culminating in seven tackles and a number of near pass deflections. White isn't consistent enough to warrant usage in most IDP leagues, but his play has been impressive nevertheless and he figures to be a major part of the team's defensive plans for years to come.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Ties for team lead in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White recorded six tackles (three solo) in the 38-28 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

The rookie outside linebacker got the start over Jatavis Brown and promptly tied for the team lead in tackles, playing in 79 percent of the team's defensive snaps. White was one of many young players to stand out during the preseason for the Chargers and will try to carry that success into Week 2 against the Bills.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Back at practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) participated in Monday's practice, Eric D. Williams of reports.

White has been sidelined for nearly a week with knee soreness but looks to now be back to near 100 percent. The rookie will resume fighting for a role in the Chargers' front seven as a weak-side linebacker.

Chargers' Kyzir White: Dealing with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Eric D. Williams of reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick is fighting for a weakside linebacker role and will likely land as the backup to Jatavis Brown. Having converted from safety to linebacker, White has a unique skill set that allows him to be a run-stopper and play in coverage. If he can't beat out Brown, White will likely still find a spot for his skills to be displayed.
