White has struggled to remain healthy since being drafted. He missed his entire rookie season after sustaining a stress fracture in his shin, and then landed on the injured reserve once again in 2016 after suffering a spiral fracture in his fibula.

The year after that, White sustained another season-ending injury in Week 1 after going down with a fractured collarbone.

White signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals last year but was cut before the start of the season. He joined the 49ers this past August has been on and off of their roster. 

For his career, White has appeared in 16 games and caught 25 passes for 285 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
