Bears to open Kevin White's 21-day practice window - [Full Article]

The Bears on Tuesday will open Kevin White's 21-day practice window, meaning they have three weeks to decide whether to move the rookie receiver to their active roster or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

White, the seventh overall pick in this year's draft, has been sidelined since sustaining a stress fracture in the lower part of his shin during OTA workouts in June. He ultimately underwent surgery and was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list.

White is not expected to practice on Tuesday. He likely will stretch with teammates and then do some light work on the side.

Fantasy Impact: 

Just because his practice window is opening does not necessarily mean that he will play in a game this season. The Bears are committed to White's long-term development, just as they were in training camp when they announced that he would need surgery, the story said. This three-week stretch could very well be enough time for the team to determine if they have a shot at the NFL playoffs, which could be a key factor in either shutting down White for the season or trying to bring him back for 2015.
