Patriots running back James White left Sunday’s game with a hip injury and it sounds like it will be a while before he’s able to return to action.

NFL Media reports that White suffered a hip subluxation before being carted off the field at Gillette Stadium. He is still undergoing tests and has an indefinite timetable to return, but an extended absence from the lineup is likely given the nature of the injury.

Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is on injured reserve after a hip subluxation in Week One, so a similar stint could be in the cards for White.

White had one carry for six yards before leaving the game. Damien Harris, J.J. Taylor, Brandon Bolden, and Rhamondre Stevenson are the other backs on the roster in New England.

  1. With Edelman retired and no true slot receiver (the Brown/Welker/Edelman string is broken), White had become the go-to guy for short yardage plays. He was missed yesterday and will be missed going forward. Always a very underrated 3rd down back.

  2. White brings so much to the team. Runs, catches, blocks and most importantly leadership. With so much turnover since the last super bowl, he is one of the few remaining icons of the glory days left. Get well soon!

  4. Are there any Patriots’ fans left? All their heroes are in Tampa not giving a whit about Belicheat and his motley crew.

  5. He will be sorely missed by an already struggling Patriots team. This was the last thing they needed.

    Spoken like a true Jets fan.

  7. Stand up gentleman. He will missed. Hopefully the Coaching staff wakes up and gives the reps to Taylor and Stevenson as Brandon Bolden may be great on special teams, but that’s the only place he’s great. The plays they ran last week with Bolden were a complete waste of downs.
