Bears place Kevin White on PUP, out for the first six games

Windy City Gridiron - [Full Article]

The Chicago Bears have announced that rookie wide receiver Kevin White is going on the reserve/physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

White was the 7th overall draft pick by the Bears, but his 2015 season is in jeopardy. White was fine at the beginning of OTAs, but he aggravated his shin towards the end of their offseason workout program. The Bears decided to start training camp with White on the PUP list, but once he started some light running, he felt discomfort.

He was re-evaluated and a stress fracture was discovered. White underwent surgery a week ago and had a rod inserted into his shin.

With White starting on the PUP list that means he's ineligible to play for at least the first six games of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: 

White's season is reportedly in jeopardy, but the Bears aren't closing the door on his rookie year. He may be able to make an impact later in the season, but he's only draftable in redraft leagues with large rosters and/or an IR spot. Eddie Royal's stock is on the rise since he'll be starting for at least the first six weeks, probably longer.
