Bears forced to put WR White on injured reserve

Print Article

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Wide receiver Kevin White suffered a broken collarbone against the Atlanta Falcons and will go on injured reserve for the third straight season.

The Bears are not calling it a season-ending injury because they have the option of activating players on injured reserve later if they've healed.

"We'll evaluate moving forward whether he can return or not," Fox said Monday. "That's pretty open-ended now with the new (injured reserve) rules."

Fox said it isn't a certainty whether White will have surgery, but confirmed it's a possibility.

"My heart goes out to him," Fox said. "He was very disappointed and discouraged in the locker room after the game for obvious reasons."

The seventh pick of the 2015 draft out of West Virginia, White was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's season-opening loss after his second catch for no gain. He came off the field, favoring the shoulder slightly, and later went to the locker room. The team confirmed the severity of the injury Monday.

White went on injured reserve last year after suffering a spiral fracture to his left fibula in the fourth game. White missed all of 2015 with a stress fracture to his left tibia.

In three seasons, White has played five games and has 21 receptions for 193 yards without a touchdown.
