Johnny White RB GB Dec 21 '11

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.

Bills rookie RB Johnny White (head) has been ruled out for the remainder of the preseason.
White was released from the hospital after his concussion Sunday night, but he won't see anymore snaps in exhibition games. We'd still keep a close eye on White's progress. C.J. Spiller isn't the answer at feature back, and Fred Jackson is likely headed for decline at age 30. White is third in line for carries.

Bills RB Johnny White (head) has already been released from the hospital, and has been cleared to fly home with the rest of the team to Buffalo.
In a postgame press conference, HC Chan Gailey reported the Bills suffered no serious injuries this evening, so it appears White has emerged from his scary episode mostly unscathed. Remarkable news for a player just hours removed from being taken off the field in a stretcher.

Bills fifth-round RB Johnny White had to be taken off the field on a stretcher after taking a hit from Broncos LB Mario Haggan on Saturday.
White was down for several minutes, but did show movement before coming off the field. Recently deemed "one of the early surprises" of training camp by the Buffalo News, White was looking to play himself into a role in the Bills backfield. His status should be updated shortly.

According to the Buffalo News, Bills RB Johnny White has been "one of the early surprises during training camp."
A fifth-round pick, White was ticketed as a future short-yardage back when he was drafted, but was mostly expected to contribute on special teams this season. If he carries his strong practice play over into the Bills' preseason games, however, he could be looking at a role in Buffalo's backfield much earlier than anticipated.

The Bills official website suggests fifth-rounder Johnny White could emerge as the goal-line back "as the season wears on."
The converted cornerback is a downhill runner, doing his best work between the tackles. White is expected to be limited to special teams duty early on, so he'll be limited to less than a handful of carries per week. This vague suggestion of an eventual goal-line vulture isn't enough to ding Fred Jackson in drafts this year.
