Patriots RB James White is "out indefinitely" after suffering a hip subluxation in Sunday's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's the same injury Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered in Week 1. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for White's return, but it sounds like he's at least headed to short-term IR. White is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Brandon Bolden stepped in as New England's lead passing-down back in Week 3, but we'll see what the Patriots do this coming week. RB Damien Harris could pick up more passing-game work -- or New England could use a bit more of RBs J.J. Taylor or Rhamondre Stevenson.

Patriots RB James White was carted off the field in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Saints. He was announced with a hip injury and ruled out for the rest of the game. We'll update White's status when we know more.

The Patriots have surprisingly released QB Cam Newton, according to multiple reports. We wouldn't have been shocked to see the team name Mac Jones its Week 1 starter, but we certainly did not foresee New England unloading Newton completely. Jones graded out among the top passers across the league in preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. His ascension should be good news for the fantasy outlooks for basically everyone in the New England offense. It signals a more traditional scheme as opposed to last year's run-heavy approach. It returns lead status near the goal line to Damien Harris and the RBs. And it should mean more -- and more accurate -- targets for all pass-catchers. We're not overly interested in Jones as a fantasy football prospect, but Jakobi Meyers, Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and James White all gain some late-round appeal. RB Damien Harris also gets a bump. Check out the updated projections for the Patriots.

Plenty has been made of Patriots RB performances this preseason, especially after 3 of them combined to rush for 4 TDs Thursday night against the Eagles. Rhamondre Stevenson contributed 2 of those, marking his 2nd straight 2-TD outing. But it's been Damien Harris dominating the work with QB Cam Newton. Among 29 snaps that Newton has played through 2 games, Harris has been on the field for 16. James White has played 9 of them, with Sony Michel in for 4. So all of Stevenson's work has come with reserves. According to Establish The Run's Adam Levitan, White has been on the field for the only 3 third-down snaps with Newton. Stevenson will bear watching, but Harris' role doesn't appear to be under seige. And keep White in mind as a late PPR option in fantasy football drafts.

RB James White is expected to re-sign with the Patriots, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. We'll see what the contract looks like, but it seems like White was met with a cool market. The 29-year-old caught just 35 balls last year -- his fewest since 2015 -- in his first season without QB Tom Brady. White should remain New England's lead pass-catching back in 2021, but a run-heavy offense under QB Cam Newton would make it tough to White to find enough volume to be a real fantasy factor.

Update: White signed a 1-year, $2.5 million deal with the Pats.

The Broncos-Patriots game has been moved to Week 6, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England was originally scheduled for a Week 6 bye. Denver was slated to play Miami in Week 6, but that game will now be rescheduled. Pull all Broncos and Patriots players from your Week 5 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos and Patriots are still slated to play on Monday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England had a 4th positive test on Sunday morning, but that evidently won't stop the game -- at least barring further positives. As always, this remains a fluid situation.

The Patriots had another COVID test come back positive on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That makes it 4 positives over the past 8 days in New England. The team closed its facilities again, and Monday's game vs. the Broncos is "now in question," according to Schefter. We'll pass along any further updates, but Patriots and Broncos players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

Patriots RB James White practiced on Wednesday. He's missed the past 2 games after his parents were in an accident, killing his father and leaving his mother in critical condition. White will presumably play against the Chiefs this weekend. His return takes a bite out of RB Rex Burkhead's appeal.

Patriots RB James White is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders as he continues to grieve the death of his father last weekend. With White out last week, RB Rex Burkhead played 71% of New England’s offensive snaps and tallied 6 carries and 6 targets. The Patriots’ game plan might be completely different this Sunday, but Burkhead is at least a RB3 or flex consideration in PPR leagues.

Patriots RB James White is a surprise healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 in South Florida reports that White's father was killed today in a car crash that also has left his mother in critical condition. White's absence from the lineup will leave opportunities for Rex Burkhead and rookie J.J. Taylor.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that RB Lamar Miller has reached a 1-year deal with the Patriots. Miller tore his left ACL last August in a preseason game against Dallas but has said he's back to full health. As long as he passes New England's physical, it looks like the veteran will join Sony Michel, Damien Harris, James White and Rex Burkhead in a crowded backfield. The arrival complicates the outlook for everyone -- though White's role figures to be least affected. As usual, there's still a lot to sort out here: Michel's recovery from foot surgery, Harris' development after a near-silent rookie year, and whether Miller makes the final roster. Just make sure you don't over-invest in any Patriots RB as you draft.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.

Patriots RB James White (toe) is active for tonight’s game against the Ravens. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but the toe injury is reportedly very minor. White is safe to get into fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the toe injury that landed Patriots RB James White on this week's injury report is "very minor." Rapoport doesn't say anything about White's availability for tonight's game against the Ravens, but the report suggests that he'll be able to play. We'll continue to look for updates on his status this morning.

Patriots RB James White (toe) was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Ravens. We don't have any other details right now. The late kickoff could make this a tricky situation for fantasy owners, but hopefully we get an update on White on Sunday morning. His absence would likely mean an expanded pass-catching role for RB Rex Burkhead.
