Packers claim RB White, place RB Saine on IR

Oct. 15, 2012
 

The Green Bay Packers' rash of injuries during Sunday night's 42-24 win over the Houston Texans collected its first causality on Monday.

The Packers have placed running back Brandon Saine on injured reserve with a knee injury and claimed running back Johnny White off waivers from the Buffalo Bills to fill his roster spot.

White, a 5-foot-10, 210-pound second-year player out of the University of North Carolina, was drafted by Buffalo in the fifth round (No. 133 overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.

He appeared in 12 games for the Bills as a rookie last season, posting 38 yards on 12 carries (3.2 avg.) and five tackles on special teams. White played in three contests this season for Buffalo and rushed for 34 yards on eight carries (4.3 avg.). He will wear No. 34 for the Packers.

Saine sustained a knee injury at Houston on Sunday night. He appeared in all six games this season, but didn't have a carry and was primarily used on special teams.

Saine, who signed with the Packers as an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State last season, sustained the injury in the third quarter and was carted off the field.
