Patriots' RB James White out for rest of the season with hip injury

The star running back was in visible pain as he was carted off the field during the Patriots' loss to the New Orleans Saints.

New England Patriots' running back James White has been ruled out for the rest of the season following a hip injury in last Sunday's game versus the Saints.

RB James White is out for the season

The New England Patriots received a blow to their ambitions on Thursday when sources confirmed that after additional medical examinations, running back James White will likely not play again this season after injuring his hip.

In last Sunday's game White could be seen in agony as he was carted off the field and almost immediately ruled out of further participation. Having just completed a play for a 6-yard gain, The Patriots' worst fears were confirmed when White instantly rolled over while clutching his right hip. His teammates immediately came to his side before he was carefully loaded on to a cart and taken for X-rays. The Partriots would go on to lose 28-13 as they fell to the New Orleans Saints.

White's loss in numbers

Going into last Sunday's game White was the leading the Patriots with 12 receptions for 94 yards, in addition to nine rushes for 32 yards. A loyal servant to the Patriots cause, the running back has spent his entire career - eight years - with the team from New England. Impressively, White came into this season with the most receptions, receiving yards and receiving touch downs on any running back in the NFL since the 2015 season. To say he will be missed is an understatement.

Last Sunday when White was sidelined, the Patriots had no choice but to turn to Brandon Bolden. The veteran performed credibly with three receptions for 23 yards but the question remains whether or not that will be the case again come game time on Sunday.
