BUFFALO, NY – Cornerback Tre’Davious White has a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and will be out for the remainder of the season, the Buffalo Bills announced, leaving them without one of their best players as they advance to the playoffs.
The fifth-year CB had an MRI on Friday morning, which confirmed the news, after the team returned from New Orleans.
The injury occurred in the second quarter of a 31-6 victory over the Saints. White was able to limp off the field, and was eventually ruled out of the game. Dane Jackson replaced him.
After the juice, coach Sean McDermott said they would take it day by day and “pray” for his return.
White has played an integral role as the best cornerback on the team. When the 2020 All-Pro has been the closest defender this season, he is allowing a 50.8% completion percentage and a 58.9 passer rating, both of which are fourth among defensive backs with more than 50 passes in his address this season, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.
He has one interception and 41 tackles on the season, plus six passes defended.
“I know everyone in the locker room is praying for him and suffering with him,” quarterback Josh Allen said. “You can’t say anything bad about that man. He comes and works hard every day.”
