Lendale White was very highly touted during his final season at the
White had a rough start to his professional career when, in training camp, he spit in the face of teammate Donnie Nickey. That incident combined with a string of nagging injuries limited White to just 244 yards on 61 carries and 1 touchdown. He then showed up for the offseason program before this season overweight. Most people began to write him off a bust.
White is on a mission to prove those people wrong this season, and he is off to a great start. He is coming off the best game of his career against the Oakland Raiders when he carried the ball 25 times for 133 yards (5.3 yards per carry). On the season he has 139 carries for 513 yards and 4 touchdowns. White is developing into the type of running back that Jeff Fisher loves. Fisher loves a back that can carry the ball 20-25 times a game and wear a defense down. So far this season, White is averaging just under 20 carries per game and has carried the ball 25, 27 and 25 times in the Titans' last three games respectively.
If White continues on this current pace, he will develop into the star running back the Titans believed he could be when they drafted him, and the word bust will never be associated with his name ever again.
