No timetable for WR Kevin White

Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Bears rookie wide receiver Kevin White took his familiar place on the sideline toward the end of the Chicago Bears practice Monday morning.

The seventh-overall pick has not participated in the team’s five practices so far because of what the Bears are describing as a shin injury. And as the Bears enter a day off Tuesday, White’s outlook for the rest of training camp remains cloudy.

The team is not making White available to media because he is injured.

“I think he’s making headway," Head coach John Fox said. "Like I said, he was on the shelf for six weeks, just his conditioning level and even soft tissue -- just building him back to get the chance to come and play football rather than just throwing him out there.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The more time he misses the more it hurts his chances of hitting the ground running once the season starts. With Eddie Royal more of a slot WR option, Marquess Wilson stands a chance to get time in place of White opposite Alshon Jeffery should White continue to miss time. Perhaps one silver lining is how Giants WR Odell Beckham struggled to get on the field and missed significant time last year in camp and to start the season, and we all know how his situation turned out.
