Johnny White RB GB 12 Months
Packers waived RB Johnny White from injured reserve.
White was sent to I.R. with a concussion earlier this month. He should clear waivers and become a free agent. A fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2011, White has been limited to 20 carries in 19 career games while also dealing with a number of head injuries.

Packers placed RB Johnny White on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.
The move clears a roster spot for Ryan Grant. White didn't receive a single carry after being claimed off waivers from the Bills in Week 6. The fact that he couldn't crack the Packers' injury-ravaged backfield bodes poorly for his NFL future.

The Packers are preparing waivers acquisition RB Johnny White for a gunner role on special teams.
White is Green Bay's No. 4 tailback, but he won't have a role on offense barring at least one injury. "He can be a contributor because he's very bright," Packers special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum said. "He played gunner in Buffalo. He also has played fullback, wing, and covered kickoffs inside and outside. He's been on punt returns. He's a kickoff returner. Done it all."

Packers claimed RB Johnny White off waivers from the Bills.
Although White has averaged just 3.6 yards per carry on 20 career attempts, he was billed as a one-cut zone runner coming out of North Carolina. That skill set would suit Green Bay's zone-running offense. White will slot in behind Alex Green, John Kuhn, and James Starks on the depth chart for now, but he could appear on the late-season fantasy radar should injuries strike.

Bills waived RB Johnny White.
White was signed in early September after the Fred Jackson injury, but now that he and Spiller are back to health, White isn't needed. The second-year pro out of North Carolina has rushed for 72 yards on 20 carries over the past two season.

Bills re-signed RB Johnny White.
It's a no-brainer move with Fred Jackson (knee) out at least three weeks. White, a 2011 fifth-round pick of the Biils, recorded 38 yards on 12 carries last season. He'll slide in as the No. 3 back behind C.J. Spiller and Tashard Choice.

Bills RB Johnny White received just one carry in Week 12, gaining two yards as Buffalo fell to the Jets.
The carry occurred early in the game inside New York's ten-yard line. White remains a better option than Tashard Choice, but he'll need a significant upgrade in playing time to be usable in fantasy football leagues going forward.

Fifth-round rookie Johnny White would serve as C.J. Spiller's backup Sunday if Fred Jackson (calf) can't go.
After Jackson went down last week, Spiller got the next three rush attempts. White cleaned up for the final two in garbage time and racked up four targets in the passing game. It's been obvious all year that the Bills have no confidence in Spiller as an inside runner, meaning there's a good chance White gets a fistful of touches against the Jets.
