Bills' All-Pro Cornerback Returns to Practice

The Buffalo Bills will finally have one of their best players return to the field this week, but it won't be against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that cornerback Tre'Davious White will return to practice this week but will be held out of this Sunday's game. White has been unavailable since tearing his ACL in Week 12 of 2021 against the New Orleans Saints. Returning to practice this week begins a 21-day window before the Bills have to elevate White to the 53-man roster or return him to season-ending injured reserve.

When White returns, he'll join a Bills defense that ranks first in points allowed and second in yards allowed through five weeks. The team has their bye in Week 6, so he should very likely be ready to go when the Bills host the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
The Bills selected White 27th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, and he has rewarded the team with stellar play ever since. He finished second in AP Defensive Rookie of the Year voting while nabbing four interceptions in 2017, and earned his first All-Pro and Pro Bowl in 2019 when he led the league with six interceptions. 

Should White return at the peak of his powers, the Bills defense could jump yet another level for the back half of the season. He'll join All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer and promising third-year cornerback Dane Jackson to form an elite secondary for one of the league's dominant teams.
