New England Patriots Running Back Still Out Indefinitely

After sustaining a hip injury during Week 3 of last season, New England Patriots running back James White had surgery. Although a lot of time has passed since then, the team is still unsure when the veteran will be able to return and he could miss the start of the season, according to Jeff Howe.

The Patriots certainly have missed White, and it will sting if he has to miss the beginning of a very important 2022 season for New England. The three-time Super Bowl champion is exactly the kind of veteran that they want healthy.

It will be intriguing to see how White recovers from here, but with there still not being an estimated timetable determined for his return, there's a real shot he misses the beginning of the regular season.
