During the third quarter of Sunday’s game between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins, cornerback Tre’Davious White of the Bills was taken off the field with what is thought to be a Achilles injury.
After a 48-20 victory, coach Sean McDermott stated that White was still being assessed.
When talking about a player who lost a year of competition after undergoing surgery to repair a damaged ligament in his right knee in December 2021, McDermott then became emotional.
Tre’Davious White Sr., an American football cornerback for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL), was born on January 16, 1995.
He played college football for LSU, where, as a senior in 2016, he was a unanimous All-American. The Bills selected him in the opening round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
As a member of the resurgent Bills defense since being given a starting spot as a rookie, White has emerged as one of the league’s top cornerbacks, garnering two Pro Bowl nominations as well as All-Pro recognition.
White went to Shreveport, Louisiana’s Green Oaks High School. He was a quarterback as well as a cornerback.
He had a five-star rating from Rivals.com and was listed as the fourth-best cornerback and 18th-best player overall in his class. White pledged to play collegiate football for Les Miles’ Louisiana State University (LSU).
What happened to Tre White?
Tre’Davious White, a cornerback for the Buffalo Bills, was recovering nicely from an ACL tear when he suffered a torn Achilles. The non-contact injury to the All-Pro defensive back happened during their Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins, their divisional rivals.
After covering Tyreek Hill, he left the field and put his helmet into the trash as team staff responded to him. Highmark Stadium was evacuated using a cart. Players and coaches for the Bills reflected on him at their individual post-game press conferences.
Football continues for the Bills while Tre’Davious White faces another rehabilitation process. Given that White will be absent for the season, they can continue with their current depth chart.
Buffalo can also trade for players that can assist in maintaining their highly regarded pass defense or add free-agent cornerbacks.
White claimed that although he had originally committed to LSU as a wide receiver, he changed his position to defensive back after realizing that the team already had future NFL talents Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry and that he was unlikely to get any playing time.
White started 11 of his 13 games as a true freshman at LSU. He had two interceptions and 55 tackles before the season was through.
He played in all 13 of his games as a sophomore in 2014 and was also the punt returner. He had 33 tackles, two interceptions, and a touchdown on a punt return.
He was given the No. 18 Jersey as a junior, which represents the team member who exemplifies leadership the most. He concluded the season with 44 tackles and scored a touchdown against Syracuse by returning a punt 69 yards.
White was chosen for the All-SEC second team by the Associated Press and the Southeastern Conference (SEC) coaches, respectively.
White had been projected to go in the late first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but he opted to stay at LSU for his senior year. He received first-team All-SEC recognition from the AP following the season.
White received an invitation to the Senior Bowl and was all prepared to participate until he hurt his ankle while stretching.
As a result of his solid practices and ability to pick things up fast while working with Cleveland Browns defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker for the Senior Bowl, he was able to improve his draft standing.
He participated in the NFL Combine and successfully completed all of the positional and combined workouts.
