The Providence Journal reported on Tuesday that defensive back Jonathan Wilhite was not a victim of a home invasion, but instead injured his groin while running to a nearby Cumberland Farms store to call police after there were two suspicious men in his driveway. Here is the statement:

"On Sunday, September 27, 2009, the North Attleboro Police responded to the Cumberland Farms store in the Attleboro Falls area of town, after receiving a call from Jonathan Wilhite concerning suspicious activity. Mr. Wilhite stated that 2 subjects were in his parking lot when he arrived home, and one approached him on foot and yelled at him.

"Mr. Wilhite became concerned and ran to Cumberland Farms where he asked the clerk to call police. He did mention that he had pulled his groin while he was running. The matter remains under investigation by North Attleboro Detectives."

The groin injury kept Wilhite out of Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons.
