Getting into Sunday’s sport, White led the Patriots with 12 receptions for 94 yards, whereas including 9 rushes for 32 yards.
The eight-year veteran, who has spent his total profession with the Patriots, entered this season having probably the most receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns by a operating again within the NFL since 2015.
In his absence, the Patriots turned to veteran Brandon Bolden to fill his function, which is sometimes called a “passing again” within the crew’s assault.
