James White is mourning the death of his father, Tyrone, after he was killed in a car crash in Florida on Sunday.
White was inactive for the New England Patriots’ Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field following the incident, which also left his mother in critical condition. The running back received an outpouring of support after news of the accident broke, including a message from a former teammate.
Tom Brady took to Twitter on Sunday evening to offer his condolences to his “forever teammate”. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback said he was “heartbroken to hear the news of the tragedy” and sent well wishes White’s way.
