The Buffalo Bills head into an exciting Week 10 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings banged up. While quarterback Josh Allen is expected to give it a go with his elbow injury, the same thing cannot be said for cornerback Tre'Davious White. He will need at least one more week in his ACL recovery.

White tore his ACL on Thanksgiving Day last season and has been working hard to rejoin the team on the field ever since. He was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list prior to Week 9 and has been participating in practice. His mentorship to the younger players has been on full display.

There's no denying that White is bursting at the seams to see some action for the first time in almost a year. He told reporters that he spent a lot of time learning about himself in the offseason, but also made sure to mention that "once I come back and perform well, it's not gonna be a surprise to me."

Adding White to a secondary that has already posted the fifth-best pass defense DVOA rating in the NFL is a scary thought. The All-Pro talent has tallied 60 pass breakups and 16 interceptions across 72 career games. White allowed only 9.9 yards per completion when targeted in coverage in 2021.

The next time White has an opportunity to suit up will be in Week 11 as the Bills take on the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. ET. For now, Buffalo enters Week 10 as a 4.5-point home favorite over Minnesota with odds set at -230 to emerge victorious, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
