Lions released LB Chris White and FB Shaun Chapas.

White was acquired via a trade with the Bills last Sunday. The Lions quickly realized he wasn't going to be a factor at SAM. Chapas spent most of last year on the practice squad.

Lions acquired LB Chris White from the Bills in exchange for QB Thad Lewis.

White wasn't going to make the Bills and Lewis wasn't going to make the Lions, so this is a trade that has a chance to be productive for both sides. A 6-foot-3, 242-pound inside or strong-side linebacker, White can play special teams and add depth in Detroit. The Lions have held an open camp battle at SAM 'backer, so there's a chance White could enter that mix eventually.

Bills LB Chris White is done for the season with a torn ACL.

The sixth-round rookie out of Missisippi State went down in Buffalo's Week 10 blowout loss to Dallas. White was an incredibly productive college player, but reconstructive knee surgery is a big blow to his long-term NFL outlook.

Bills rookie LB Chris White pulled a hamstring in Sunday's win over the Patriots and will miss a few weeks.

White, the Bills' sixth-round pick this season, had two tackles in each of the first three games. He was acting as the No. 5 inside linebacker and special teamer.

Sixth-round LB Chris White is out 2-3 weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in the Bills' preseason opener.

White has already been ruled out for this week, and it sounds like he could have a high ankle sprain. The former Mississippi State star will enter the season as Buffalo's No. 5 inside linebacker, focusing mostly on special teams.

Bills selected Mississippi State LB Chris White with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

White is an excellent run stopper, adept at both shedding blocks and making tackles. However, he lacks NFL-pursuit skills, and is a below-average pass rusher. His snap count on passing downs figures to be minuscule.
