Jay Glazer, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bears decided to have first-round WR Kevin White undergo surgery to repair stress fracture in his leg after another setback this week. White was coming along in his rehab after team held him back since end of OTAs then felt pain this week. Will start season on PUP.

Fantasy Impact: 

White will apparently start the season on PUP so he’ll miss the first six games of the year. Even then, he’ll have to work his way back into shape, so we should only expect about a half season of production from him. He’s a late-round flier in leagues that have IR spots or other ways to stash injured players. His absence creates a big opportunity for Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson, who should fill the WR2 and WR3 roles, respectively. Also look for Jay Cutler to lean on Martellus Bennett over the middle and in the red zone.
