Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) - During his weekly Monday Zoom call with the Buffalo media, Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White will miss the remainder of the 2023 season with a torn Achilles.
White was carted off the field late in the third quarter of Sunday's 48-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins at Highmark Stadium. This after he came up lame on his right foot while covering Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill on a fourth down pass play.
"Very difficult, very unfortunate, a shame," said McDermott on Monday following White's official diagnosis. "Knowing 'Tre', once he gets his feet back underneath him here, no pun intended, he'll be fine. He's a resilient young man, extremely committed and determined to be successful in his life and his career.
"Around our team, guys are talking about it, guys want to do everything they can to support 'Tre' and wrap their arms around 'Tre' and his family. That's what we intend to do and help them through all of this."
This is the second major injury of White's seven-year career with the Bills. During the 2021 season, White suffered a torn ACL in his knee that also cut his campaign short in a Thanksgiving matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
The 28-year-old did rehab and fight his way back to return to the Buffalo lineup nearly one year to the day, and played a total of six regular season games and two playoff contests.
White has been with the Bills since he was drafted by the team at 27th overall in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was named a First-Team All-Pro during his 2019 season, followed by a Second-Team All-Pro nod in 2020. The veteran is also a two-time Pro Bowler in each of those two seasons.
