It took all year, but it looks like Lucky Whitehead will finally play in a regular season game. The wide receiver/kick returner was part of a couple of strange stories over the summer. The first came when he announced his dog was being held for ransom. The pooch was returned shortly before a warrant for Whitehead’s arrest was issued in Virginia for failing to appear in court on a shoplifting charge. The problem was that another man had falsely used Whitehead’s name and identifying information after the initial arrest. Whitehead was eventually cleared, but the Cowboys cut him while the matter was being sorted out and Whitehead landed with the Jets on waivers. He then broke his foot, which led to surgery and an extended absence from the football field.
