White (thumb) has returned to full health, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Coach John Harbaugh made the announcement during Thursday's end-of-season press conference, mentioning that White is back to 100 percent after suffering a thumb injury in preseason that sidelined him for his entire rookie year. Now that he's healthy, White should be ready for the start of organized team activities in the spring. However, as a former undrafted free agent that'll be battling other fringe receivers along with 2018 rookies, White will need to show that he's more than just healthy this spring in order to secure a roster spot.
White (thumb) was officially placed on injured reserve Friday.
This move was essentially a foregone conclusion following the announcement of his season-ending thumb surgery in mid-August. He made a strong impression early in camp and he will look to build off of it in the 2018 preseason.

This is crushing news for the undrafted rookie after he shined in his preseason debut with a dazzling 33-yard touchdown on his lone target. White had been making a strong impression in camp as well, which made his outstanding performance in the preseason game all the more encouraging. With season-ending surgery on tap, he'll likely hit injured reserve. White's absence this season thins the competition for the final receiver spots on the roster, helping the likes of Quincy Adeboyejo, Chris Moore and C.J. Board.
