The AP has reported that LenDale While told reporters that he played the entire 2007 season on a torn meniscus.
“This happened last year in preseason. I tore my meniscus,” White said. “I played on it all season. Contrary to what people believe, I am a soldier. I played on it all year and I didn’t complain, not once. I waited until the season was over to get it fixed and now I’m feeling good.”
Hmm..I wonder why he let this out now. I mean, I know he feels a little competition now. Last season he was the 12th leading RB in the NFL, but also was tied for the most fumbles lost in the league. White has a lot to prove this year. Many local reporters have mentioned that he came into camp a little heavy. But White had surgery in January, so that’s kind of understandable.
*Side Note – If you’re entire job was to be in shape, why wouldn’t you be in shape? This has never made sense to me.
White says his knee is close to 100% and could be part of an incredible tandem with Chris Johnson. We’ll see how his knee holds up over camp. It’s something to keep our eyes on.
