New York Jets quarterback Mike White left Highmark Stadium in an ambulance after Sunday’s 20-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
The move is considered a precautionary measure to “make sure he is fine internally,” per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
White took several hard hits during the game, including three sacks and a big shot from Bills linebacker Matt Milano. He was initially ruled as questionable to return with a rib injury before coming back into the game two drives later.
Flacco fumbled on his first play after replacing White in the third quarter before leading a three-and-out on his only full possession. The veteran had also entered the game for two plays in the first half, throwing one incomplete pass before the starter returned.
White was more productive, leading one touchdown drive in the third quarter and a late field-goal drive to keep it a one-possession game. The quarterback finished 27-of-44 for 268 passing yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.
