Bills’ CB Tre’Davious White is considered day-to-day heading into Week 10 when Buffalo hosts Minnesota.
White was activated from the reserve/PUP list on November 1. Before that, he returned to practice in Week 6, which was his first NFL action since rupturing his left ACL in Week 12 of the 2021 season against the Saints.
Before suffering the injury, White missed just three games in his career. He earned Pro Bowl selections in 2019 and 2020, and was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2019 and a second-team All-Pro selection in 2020.
In 2019, he had a career-high six interceptions, 17 passes defensed, and allowed zero touchdowns, while in 2021 – prior to the injury – he was the only Bills defender with at least 50 targets to not allow a touchdown.
The major concern is if he’s recovered fully from the rupture. Injuries of this nature often take 9-12 months to heal, so White is approaching the later end of that window. Bills general manager spoke with the media about White’s recovery and the process, praising him, saying “I’ve seen guys rehab from ACLs really good. I’m not gonna say it’s the best, but I’ve seen nobody better than Tre, the work he’s put into it.”
White has ramped up both his conditioning and participation since returning to practice three weeks ago. A major focus for players returning from ACL ruptures – especially those with skill sets like White – is how the knee responds to excessive force from driving, jumping, and cutting.
Our algorithm predicts White has reached Optimal Recovery, meaning he should be in line to play against the Vikings. His Injury Risk is High (21%), his Health Performance Factor is Peak (85%). So while he is ready to play, his Injury Risk indicates he may be on a snap count.
