Tre’Davious White: Injury-hit cornerback ‘hopefully’ on course for NFL 2024

Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Tre’Davious White is making “good progress” in his comeback from a torn Achilles and could be ready for the Los Angeles Rams’ NFL 2024 opener at Detroit Lions on September 9, his team has said.

White joined the Rams in April after being released by first team the Buffalo Bills but has been out since September as his recovery continues.

“It’s a significant injury that he’s overcome,” head coach Sean McVay said. He’s gotten a lot of good stuff done on the side. You could see he’s really locked in and engaged in the meeting setting.

“As far as what his actual process will be in training camp, we’ll see where he’s at. He does such a great job, understands his body, and so I don’t think we want to pigeonhole ourselves into one approach.”

Only 10 active cornerbacks have a higher tally than the 18 career interceptions recorded by White, who considered five teams before signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Rams.

The 29-year-old was said to have made the move partly because of McVay and Rams sports medicine boss Reggie Scott’s plan for his rehabilitation.

“I’m a guy that’s very strategic [with] my approach of how I would want my rehab to go, being that I’ve had an ACL before and I know how rehab can go,” White said when he signed.

“I was doing my homework. This team has rehab guys who have been very successful with the Achilles before. They’re very transparent, just very authentic with the plan that they have in place.”

Rams ‘hopeful’ over White

McVay singled out how important Head Team Physician Neal ElAttrache’s observations would be in judging White’s situation. “He was able to partake in the walkthrough,” said the 38-year-old.

“How’s he feeling? What does it look like relative to when Neal ElAttrache checks up on him and what’s going to be the best thing for him?

“[It’s] not only for hopefully being ready to go for the opener, but for the totality of the season.”

The Rams finished second in the NFC West in 2023, losing to the Lions in the Wild Card Round of the play-offs.
