Jonathan Wilhite Victim of Crime Near Home

UPDATE: There was no home invasion after all, but Wilhite pulled his groin while running away from two men who were chasing him.

Before the game Sunday against the Faclons, healthy cornerback Jonathan Wilhite was listed as inactive with an unknown injury. Fortunately, the Patriots were able to win 26-10 without their young corner, but the game and its result take a back seat to the reason Wilhite didn’t play. Many news outlets are reporting that Wilhite was the victim of a crime, possibly a home invasion, near his home in North Attleboro early Sunday morning.

Wilhite’s agent wouldn’t confirm whether the player was injured in the incident.

“Basically the injury is nothing serious,” said agent Jason¬†Chayut. “He’ll be back at practice. The incident is not something I’m going to talk about. It’s a police matter. It was nothing serious. The kid is fine.”

It looks the the Patriots, police, Wilhite, and his agent are going to sweep this matter under the rug. Because it’s a personal issue, I understand that. If Wilhite plays in Week 4, I think it’s safe to assume he’s OK. If he does not, then that’s another story.
