Core 4: White rebounds

10/10/2011

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- When comprising a 46-man game-day roster, the role of special teams becomes especially important. With this in mind, here is a look at Patriots players showing up on multiple special teams units Sunday against the Jets:

Four units

S James Ihedigbo

WR Matthew Slater

LB Jeff Tarpinian

S Ross Ventrone

LB Tracy White

Three units

S Sergio Brown

LB Dane Fletcher

Two units

CB Antwaun Molden

LB Rob Ninkovich

RB Stevan Ridley

ANALYSIS: Linebacker Tracy White, who missed a tackle on Joe McKnight's 88-yard kickoff return, was credited with a team-high two special teams tackles. ... Cornerback Antwaun Molden was alert with a big fumble recovery and a tackle. ... While James Ihedigbo started at safety, his regular role as a "Core Four" player remains intact.
