The Bears broke one bad early season trend by beating the Lions 17-14 to improve their record to 1-3 on Sunday, but another one remained in place.

The Bears have been ravaged by injuries and they saw wide receiver Kevin White join the list when he hurt his ankle during the win. Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports that White is scheduled to have an MRI Monday to determine the extent of the injury.

Injuries have been a major theme in White’s brief NFL career. The 2015 first-round pick missed his entire rookie season after having surgery to repair a shin problem and dealt with a hamstring injury leading into the start of this season.

White has 19 catches for 187 yards so far this season, including six catches for 55 yards before being injured against the Lions.

    Leonard Floyd didn’t finish the game yesterday either.

    It’s a shame that Ryan Pace’s 1st round picks aren’t turning out so well but at least he’s finding some good players in the rounds after that… Whitehair, Howard and Amos being three good examples.

    At what point do you realize a particular player is injury prone and not worth the $$$$ required to keep them on the roster? I’m certain White is a very talented receiver but it doesn’t matter if he is Superman if he can’t play. He appears to be the Bear’s version of the Bull’s Rose.

    Dude sat the season for shin splints last year, kind of tells you his body is fragile.
