Patriots’ Devin McCourty was able to get the opening touchdown on Sunday Night Football and he dedicated to James White who sat out the game this after learning his father died in a car crash this afternoon.
Sad news to report. Patriots' RB James White's father was in a car crash today and did not survive. His mother was also in the car and is in critical condition.
White's father, Tyrone, was a captain with the Miami-Dade Police Department.
James was told and is inactive tonight.

That is in reference to James White, who is No. 28.
