    Pat White isn't injured, but will miss all of training camp and maybe the season with "a serious non-football issue". My guess is he might be dealing with depression since the Miami faithful haven't really embraced him.

      Same stuff happened with Limas Sweed last year (he didn't miss camp, though, just randomly went on IR) and we still don't know what it was.

      Some people have ventured out to say it could have been some kind of STD, but guys like beat writer Ed Bouchette and Rotoworld say it was probably severe depression, which he supposedly beat.

      He changed his number, was looking more confident in the spring, and then tore his achilles.

          Wow, that's huge. Bizarre.
          I'd not really heard any of that yet.
          I was wondering why he hadn't taken off in that wildcat as I thought he'd be the perfect guy to take that to a new level.

          What's he depressed about that much?
          I thought mostly only women get that medically depressed.

          "Non-football issue"? Couldn't it, in fact, be a nasty STD or staph-infection, something of that nature instead of just in his head?

          From the PBP:
          White, in his second year out of West Virginia, has taken flak in his one-plus year in the league for not being an NFL-caliber quarterback.

          White was 0-for-5 passing last year out of the Wildcat formation, and rushed for 81 yards with a fumble. He had participated fully with the Dolphins during organized team activities and mini-camps in May and June, sharing backup reps with Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen.

          The Dolphins don’t necessarily need White, with Pennington, Thigpen and Chad Henne already in camp, and Ronnie Brown healthy and ready to run the Wildcat offense again.

          White got in trouble with his bosses over the summer when he said on Twitter he would rather quit football than switch to another position. White deleted his Twitter account shortly thereafter. He also had a very tense interview with the media during OTAs, giving only brief answers.

            sounds like he's not cut out for the NFL. that's unfortunate.

              That's a terrible blow for a guy like Dez. He needed every single rep he could get. Missing all the training camp reps and pre-season games could sideline him for the majority of the season.

                Update on Pat White.
                Sat, July 31, 9 a.m.

                David Neal of the Miami Herald reports Dolphins quarterback Pat White was at practice Saturday morning and throwing the football. White missed Friday's practice for unknown reasons.

                Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel had reported earlier that according to a league source, the Dolphins backup quarterback could miss the entire regular season with a non-football related issue that is described as serious.

                It appears White is ok.

                  I made a bet with a buddy of mine on Pat White during that draft. He predicted that White would be drafted in the 3rd round or earlier.

                  I was like no way, he's horrible, I wouldn't touch him until the 5th round at earliest.

                  It blew my mind that the Dolphins spent a 2nd on him. Couldn't believe it. He's never going to amount to anything in the league. He'll be out of the NFL within 2 years.

                    Yea that pick was terrible, people always give Parcells tons of credit but I have no clue what he saw in him and that pick was all Parcells. He's not a return man, not going to be a WR, can't be a QB, there was really no use for him at all.

                        <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                          Oh this is some BS for M.O.T.H's fantasy team.

                          Really though, I hope he's alright. Same for Desean.

                          _____

                          Desean's doesnt sound that serious...dont know about Percy.

                              I hate how ESPN keeps saying carted off the field like the person getting injured is leaving the field on a stretcher or something.

                                Yeah...a little over dramatic. They make it sound like everything is season or career threatening.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
