Without knowing more about the wound, it is very difficult to say with certainty.
Often, white tissue in the base of a wound is slough, which is dead fat (or, rarely, muscle) which certainly could be removed by debridement
to speed up the healing process. It can be removed by certain dressing techiniques, also. Healthy tendon and fascia can also appear white, though, so ask your doctor!
