A shin injury suffered in offseason workouts has landed Bears first-round pick Kevin White on the physically unable to perform list as training camp gets underway.
General Manager Ryan Pace said Wednesday that the team wants to take it easy with White given how much time remains before the start of the season and that they want him to focus on building up his cardiovascular strength before letting him loose on the field. Pace also said that White isn’t thrilled by the decision.
“He’s fired up,” Pace said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “We kind have to put handcuffs on him.”
Quarterback David Fales also wound up on the PUP list because of an illness, but outside linebackers Willie Young and LaMarr Houston have both been cleared to practice after suffering a torn Achilles and ACL, respectively, last season.
