Timetable for return TBD
The Patriots aren't putting a timeline on White's (hip) return to practice,, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.
The veteran change-of-pace option, who is working his way back from right hip surgery, opened training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list. Though the team still has some time to evaluate White's progress in the coming weeks, Howe suggests that it's possible the 30-year-old could remain on the PUP list to start the season. If that comes to pass, White would be in line to miss at least four games. In such a scenario, the team would be forced to get creative in terms of filling the pass-catching void in the backfield, with Pierre Strong and Rhamondre Stevenson among the players who could be candidates to pick up added targets.
