The Patriots lost a key cog of their offence after running back James White was carted off the field early in the second quarter with a hip injury. The team says he is out for the remainder of the game versus the New Orleans Saints.
White was being tackled along the sideline by Saints linebacker Demario Davis after a 6-yard run with 11:34 remaining in the quarter when he landed awkwardly on his knees.
White remained on his back and was attended to by the training staff before the cart was called out.
Nearly all of White’s teammates came by to pat him on the shoulder before the cart drove to the locker room.
