Wilhite’s with the starters


For those of you who are wondering — and take this for what it’s worth — Jonathan Wilhite is out there working as the Patriots starting left cornerback, opposite Leigh Bodden, in warmups.

Wilhite was benched in the fourth quarter of last week’s game against the Saints, after New Orleans continually victimized the second-year corner. Rookie Darius Butler took his spot in the lineup, but is now working with the second defense, opposite Kyle Arrington.

So there you have it.
