NY Jets quarterback Mike White is day-to-day
It appears New York Jets fans can breathe a sigh of relief. After quarterback Mike White absorbed a boatload of bone-shattering hits in Buffalo on Sunday, it appears White is trending in a positive direction. On Monday, head coach Robert Saleh labeled White as “day-to-day”, and the Jets are preparing for him to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
