NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Michael Giardi reported on Monday that White had a minor or incomplete hip dislocation.

However, sources told Schefter and Yates that the injury will end White’s season after only three games, pending further medical examinations.

White was tackled by New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis on the turf at Gillette Stadium with 11:23 left in the second quarter after a six-yard run.

In Foxborough, the 29-year-old White was carted off the field and did not return for the rest of the game. After Sunday’s game, fellow Patriots team captain David Andrews said:

“James is a great player, but he’s a better teammate.” “I wish him the best and will make every effort to communicate with him,” Andrews said. “To lose him was crucial,” said Kendrick Bourne, a wide receiver. He’s a key figure in the organization. He’s a problem for defenses on third down, and they have to keep an eye on him,” Bourne said. The Patriots must fill a significant void, as James White is not only one of the NFL’s best pass catchers, but also one of their most dependable and respected players.
