The New England Patriots now have a big hole to fill, as the steady pass-catching tailback in James White is out for the season, according to multiple reports. Returning to practice, however, was wideout N’Keal Harry.
After further medical examinations this week, Patriots’ RB James White’s hip injury is expected to end his 2021 season, per @FieldYates and me.

White was carted off in Sunday’s Patriots-Saints.
Harry suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2 of the preseason and was week-to-week with no structural damage — he was placed on the injured reserve, and the Patriots have 21 days to take him off IR and put him on the 53-man roster.
