Bears place WR Kevin White on IR with a fractured fibula

The Bears are placing WR Kevin White on Injured Reserve with a high-ankle sprain and fracture. Eligible to return in 8 weeks.

Related players: Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, Zach Miller

Fantasy Impact: 

An eight-week timeline means that White can be cut in most formats. Eddie Royal looks to be the best bet to step up in White's absence. Royal played 52% of the snaps in Week 4 (with White playing 59%, prior to the injury), catching seven passes for 111 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. He'll be a Sneaky Start this week against the Colts. Consider him an untrustworthy low-end WR3/WR4, depending on the matchup. White's absence also frees up extra targets for Alshon Jeffery and Zach Miller.
