After the Bears drafted receiver Kevin White with the seventh overall pick in last year’s draft, he missed his entire rookie season with a stress fracture in his leg. Now White has more bad news on the injury front.
White suffered an ankle injury Sunday against the Lions and is expected to miss significant time, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
That’s a major disappointment for White, who seemed like he was developing a good rapport with Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer. White had six catches in each of Hoyer’s two starts.
While Alshon Jeffery remains the Bears’ top receiver, Eddie Royal is likely to get more passes thrown his way while White is out.
