Activated off Saints' COVID list

White was activated off of the Saints' practice squad COVID list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old had been away from the team since Dec. 27 after being placed on the COVID list. White will rejoin the Saints' practice squad and operate as a depth option, ready to be elevated if needed in Week 18 against the Falcons.

Set for absence

White (illness) was placed on the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: White joined the Saints' practice squad on Dec. 7 and was elevated to the active roster for the team's Week 14 matchup against the Jets. He played primarily on special teams and did not command a target. If he can clear protocols, White could be a candidate to be elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game against Carolina if Tre'Quan Smith (chest) remains unavailable.

Back to practice squad

White reverted to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: White was added to the active roster for a Week 14 matchup against the Jets to account for a number of absences among the Saints' receiver corps. However, he did not log any stats on 12 offensive and 14 special teams snaps.

Elevated from practice squad

White was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White, who has appeared in five games with the Saints this season, has a chance to take on a fairly significant role Sunday against the Jets. With Lil'Jordan Humphrey (hamstring) questionable, Ty Montgomery on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Deonte Harris suspended, White could end up as high as third on the Saints' wide receiver depth chart.

Signed to Saints' practice squad

White was signed back to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old has been on and off of the Saints' practice squad all season, most recently being cut by the team Nov. 30. White has been active for five games this season for the Saints, reeling in one catch for 38 yards on 5 targets. With Deonte Harris (suspension) unavailable for three weeks, he may have an opportunity to crack the active roster once again in the coming weeks.

Cut by Saints

White was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: White has one catch for 38 yards in five games for New Orleans this season, but he's now headed back to the open market, assuming he clears waivers. He could be a candidate to rejoin the team's practice squad.

Nov 30, 2021 10:41 PM EST


Signed to active roster

White was signed back to the Saints' active active roster Tuesday.

Analysis: White was waived by the Saints on Nov. 20, but he was resigned Tuesday to their active roster. In what has been a rollercoaster year for the wide receiver, he has appeared in four games for the team, reeling in one catch for 38 yards in 39 offensive snaps.

Nov 23, 2021 2:51 PM EST


Waived by New Orleans

White was waived by the Saints on Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: White appeared in four games during his time with the Saints, and he hauled in one of five targets for 38 yards. He'll now seek out other opportunities to close out the 2021 campaign.

Nov 20, 2021 5:36 PM EST


Signed to active roster

The Saints signed White to their active roster Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: White was elevated from the Saints' practice squad for the last three games, but he'll now land a contract with the team. He's hauled in one of three receptions for 38 yards this year.

Nov 13, 2021 3:11 PM EST


Reverts to practice squad

White reverted back to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: White played on 15 offensive snaps against the Falcons, but did not record a single target. The veteran wideout also played 13 special team's snaps, recording two tackles on kick coverage while forcing a fumble recovered by Atlanta. White heads back to the practice squad to await his next opportunity to see the field.

Nov 11, 2021 8:15 AM EST


No opportunities against Falcons

White was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: With Ty Montgomery (hamstring) and Lil'Jordan Humphrey (COVID-19) sidelined, White was active for a third straight game but he ultimately finished fifth among Saints wide receivers in offensive snaps.

Nov 8, 2021 1:50 PM EST


Added to active roster

White was added to the active roster Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White has made his way up to the active roster each of the last two weeks, and with Ty Montgomery (hamstring) out Sunday, White will move up for the third week in a row. In the last two weeks, White has played 17 snaps on offense getting three targets and a 38-yard reception.

Nov 6, 2021 3:09 PM EST


Drops down to practice squad

White reverted to New Orleans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transactions log.

Analysis: White hauled in his lone target of the game for 38 yards, which was enough to lead his team in receiving on the way to a 36-27 victory. He also recorded a tackle on punt coverage. White has now appeared in two consecutive contests, though he logged more snaps on special teams (15) than on offense (nine).

Makes first catch since 2018

White secured his only target for 38 yards during Sunday's 36-27 win over Tampa Bay.

Analysis: The Saints opened the second half with a bomb to White, who made his first reception since 2018. The 2015 No. 7 overall pick could have had another long gain but Trevor Siemian was sacked before he could throw it. However, with Tre'Quan Smith back in the fold and Michael Thomas (ankle) potentially returning in the near future, it's not clear how many more opportunities Smith could see going forward. In addition, the potential long-term absence of Jameis Winston (knee) takes away the best chance New Orleans has at establishing a consistent long-range passing attack.

Oct 31, 2021 6:20 PM EST


Elevated for Week 8

White has been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White saw two targets on just eight offensive snaps in Week 7. He'll likely see similar playing time Sunday.

Oct 30, 2021 3:32 PM EST


Sent back to practice squad

White was reverted back to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: White played on only eight of the Saints' 74 offensive snaps in Week 7, and the receiver didn't catch either of his two targets. White was able to log five snaps on special teams, notching one tackle on kick coverage. Expect White to stay on the practice squad unless someone in the Saints' receiving room suffers an injury.

Oct 27, 2021 6:28 PM EST


Quiet in debut

White failed to secure either of his two targets in Monday's 13-10 win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: White was elevated from the practice squad Monday, but he was unable to make the most of his limited opportunity. The wideout played on just eight of the team's 74 offensive snaps, the lowest for any Saints' wide receiver. Production will likely be hard to come by for the veteran if he is able to stick to the active roster. White can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Oct 27, 2021 5:31 AM EST


Elevated for Monday

White was elevated to New Orleans' active roster from the practice squad Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: White failed to make the Saints' season-opening roster but has stuck around on the practice squad, and he'll now have a chance to make his season debut. The 2015 first-round pick appeared in three games for the 49ers last season but is without a reception since 2018.

Oct 25, 2021 3:09 PM EST


Cut by New Orleans

White was released by the Saints on Tuesday.

Analysis: White signed with the Saints halfway through the preseason and faced an uphill battle to secure a roster spot. It wouldn't be a surprise if he found his way to New Orleans' practice squad, though.
