The Buffalo Bills’ star cornerback, Tre’Davious White, left their Thanksgiving game with a potentially serious knee injury.
After losing to the Indianapolis Colts and Jonathan Taylor and falling to second-place in the AFC East behind the New England Patriots, the Buffalo Bills were looking to get back in the win-column. They faced off against the New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving, who are battered by injuries on the offensive side of the ball.
But, the Bills received a scare in the first half. Cornerback Tre’Davious White left the game after apparently buckling his left knee on a play.
The Bills initially announced that White was doubtful to return, but he was downgraded to out following halftime.
Bills CB Tre’Davious White ruled out with knee injury
As you can see in the videos above, White was covering Saints wideout Marquez Callaway on a play. In the process, White’s knee buckled awkwardly, causing him to limp. He was emotional on the sidelines.
With White now out, the next concern is how severe the injury is. That will be determined when he undergoes testing in the coming hours and days.
Entering the Thanksgiving game, White posted 41 combined tackles, five defended passes, one interception, one forced fumble and recovery, and 0.5 sacks. In coverage, White allowed just 33 receptions for 328 yards and zero touchdowns on 63 targets this year, per Pro Football Reference.
