Kevin White to start Bears camp on PUP list


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.

  1. Meaningless to you and me since the Bears were losing by 40 at the time. But meant a lot to Lamar apparently since it was also his first sack as a bear. And last also. That play was the perfect snapshot of your 2014 bears

  2. The only 2 Bears offensive players who even showed up and played decent against Green Bay the past few years has been Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. Then they replace Marshall with a rookie?

    We would have won that game against the Patriots if Houston didn’t tear his ACL.


    The Lion’s would have won their playoff game if the Tulloch didn’t tear his ACL too, not because of a total legit PI called with plenty of time left in that game.

  5. good, that should give him plenty of time to get a hair cut and start looking like a dude … not a Caitlin.

  6. Injuries happen. Think of Dante Fowler or Jadeveon Clowney. Those are injuries that really affect a young player and his team badly. Hopefully this is a just an episode and Kevin will be ready to move on and be an integral part of this offense soon. I never hid that I would have picked somebody else (Trae Waynes), not because I don’t believe in White’s talent and potential, but because of my personal assessment of the team needs and of the fact that the best teams in the division are stacked with great WRs and/or great QBs. This said, I could not be more excited about a White/Jeffery duo now, and I sincerely hope that this is just a freak injury.
