The dynamic RB didn’t play against the Seahawks after being informed. The Broward County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office confirmed the death after the crash in Cooper City, according to ESPN.

Obviously, this is incredibly heartbreaking, and there’s no other way to put it. Parents dying is one of the toughest parts of life.

It’s not something anyone is really built to deal with, especially when it happens under such incredibly tragic circumstances.

James White is a 100% pure class human, and I can’t imagine how much he’s struggling right now. He must be filled with so much heartbreak and pain.

It’s a horrible situation that he’s found himself in, and it happened out of nowhere.

Our thoughts and prayers are with James White, his family, friends and the Patriots during this tough time.
