    SUMMARY: Rookie RB LenDale White was forced to sit out Saturday night's preseason opener against the Saints because on an incident last Thursday where he spit at S Donnie Nickey. White hadn't apologized to Nickey for his actions but appeared to show much more remorse yesterday. "As far as spitting, that was the 100 percent wrong thing to do," said White. "But as far as going after him and pushing him, I felt that is what I needed to do. My emotions just got the best of me. There was a lot of things that worked into the situation. But I know that what I did was the wrong thing. He is my teammate … and I apologized and everything is fine. From here on out we're going to go out and win a lot of football games."

    He did what he should have and showed some class and he needed to. It was handled well by Fisher and hopefully it's behind him with his team mates. Now lets get him on the field in Denver and see what he's got.

    I'd give him more credit if he'd made the apology the first time he gave a statement to the media after Saturday's game.

    It lacks some sincerity. (I also really doubt that White "loves Nickey to death" or vice versa. It's not like they've been teammates for years.)

    That said, better late than never, and I am looking forward to seeing White on the field.

    But I think he still has some maturing to do before he really gets it.

    Agreed. The whole thing sounded very rehearsed and insincere, but at least he said something.
