Tre’Davious White, one of the most feared defensive backs in the NFL, was forced off the field during the Bills’ game against the Saints with an injury.

He was seen leaving the field looking in pain with his groin injury, having returned to the field earlier with a shoulder injury.

The Buffalo Bills will ‘ramp up’ training in light of the injury, says coach Sean McDermott.

White, 22, is currently playing the second season of a five-year, $28m (£21.7m) contract.

He had a sensational rookie season, making 49 tackles and intercepting four passes.

He missed the second half of the season with a knee injury, but went on to record 82 tackles and five interceptions this year.

Despite missing just two games in his first two years, White is currently on the radar of several NFL teams.

Just last week the veteran said he has been in contact with the Seahawks, Cowboys, and Giants, among others.

“There are 32 teams that need a good corner, and in this day and age, that’s hard to come by,” White said.

“I’m still a young guy, still got a lot left in the tank, a lot of football left to play. There’s a lot of teams still looking for a corner. There’s two or three teams out there that are looking for cornerbacks right now.”

Saints head coach Sean Payton was reluctant to give much detail regarding White’s injury, other than to confirm that it was “related to a groin”.
