White recorded seven tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-28 loss versus the Giants.
After leading Arizona in tackles in Week 1, White tied for second on the team in Week 2, including a sack for just the fourth time in his career. He's easily on pace for his third consecutive 100-tackle season and remains a good IDP option headed into a Week 3 matchup versus Dallas.

White racked up nine tackles, including one for a loss, during Sunday's 20-16 defeat in Washington.
White was one of four Cardinals to log all 71 defensive snaps along with safety Budda Baker and cornerbacks Marco Wilson and Kei'Trel Clark, but White made the biggest mark in the box score, tackle-wise. Considering he followed coach Jonathan Gannon from Philadelphia to Arizona this offseason, White appears as if he'll be a weekly beneficiary of that relationship. And White is coming off back-to-back 100-tackle campaigns, meaning he's firmly in the IDP conversation in 2023.
The Cardinals and White agreed Tuesday to terms on a contract, Bo Brack of GoPHNX.com reports.
White is coming off back-to-back 100-tackle campaigns, one with the Chargers in 2021 and another with the reigning NFC champion Eagles last year. He also totaled 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in 34 regular-season games during that stretch. With the Cardinals, White should continue to earn regular snaps at inside linebacker alongside Zaven Collins (calf), as Isaiah Simmons' versatility bounces him around the formation.
White finished the regular season with 110 tackles, including 66 solo, as well as 1.5 sacks.
White's tackle total represents a step back from the 144 he managed in his final season as a Charger, but it was still a strong mark. He trailed only T.J. Edwards among his Eagles teammates and tied for 39th in the league.
