Kevin White's NFL debut 'long way off'

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

The first pick of the Ryan Pace era in Chicago likely won't see the field until the 2016 season.

In August, rookie wide receiver Kevin White underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his shin. The Bears placed White, the seventh overall pick in the draft, on the PUP list hoping he would be able to return late in the season. Now seven weeks into the season, White doesn't seem to be close to making his NFL debut.

While at a Bears community event Tuesday, White told reporters that he's "a long way off" from returning to the field.

Fantasy Impact: 

The door isn't closed on this season, but all signs realistically point to 2016 for White's first game. It would be interesting to see what the Bears offense could do with a healthy White added to Alshon Jeffery, Jay Cutler and Matt Forte.
