The return for Tre’Davious White will have to wait at least another week as Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced on Wednesday that the former All-Pro would not return on Sunday, according to The Athletics’ Joe Buscaglia.

The Bills have been without Tre’Davious White all season as he began the year on the physically unable to perform list due to a torn ACL suffered last year against the New Orleans Saints. He was required to miss the first four games of the season but the Bills could open the practice window after the game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The team waited an extra week but did open the practice window on October 12th ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs game.

What is next for the Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White?

The Buffalo Bills will now have a decision to make before Wednesday, November 2nd. By that day, the Bills will need to either activate him to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve. If they place him on injured reserve before activating him, he will be out for the remainder of the year.

Another option would be to activate him to the 53-man roster and then move him to injured reserve if he needs more time. This would mean he would only miss the next three games but would be eligible to return.

However, it appears that he is close and the team might just want to be cautious with one of the most important players on the roster. During practice on Wednesday, Tre’Davious White was practicing without a non-contact jersey according to the video Josh Reed tweeted.

While it would have been great for White to return this week, it certainly appears he is close and most likely will make his return in a big AFC East divisional matchup with the New York Jets next week.
