During Sunday’s loss to the Steelers, rookie quarterback Pat White got his first taste of the NFL in something other than a cameo appearance, after starter Chad Henne left with an injury.
After only three drives, however, White exited the field on a stretcher, after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit from cornerback Ike Taylor.
Per a league source, White suffered a concussion. He lost consciousness “for several seconds,” but White is now doing “better.”
White has the entire offseason to recuperate; the 30-24 loss knocked Miami out of the playoffs.
UPDATE: Another source with knowledge of the situation says that White has been taken to a hospital for observation and testing. He has full use of all extremities.
