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.
White (knee) underwent minor knee surgery and will not play in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Eric Williams of ESPN.com 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.
White recorded six tackles (three solo) in the 38-38 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 standout during the preseason for the Chargers and will hope to carry that success into Week 2 against the Bills.
White (knee) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com 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.
