To say the Chicago Bears are presently thin at wide receiver is an understatement.
Chicago’s top three receivers on the depth chart all sat out Friday’s practice, including former first-round pick Kevin White, whom head coach John Fox said had the day off.
"We do that periodically where we adjust the number of reps [for a specific player like White]," Fox said. "But that’s kind of the grind of camp."
As you probably saw in our news feed this week, wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (concussion) have been out. The story said it's encouraging they watched practice from the sidelines, since both were kept out of sight from the media on Thursday. Don't forget, tight end Zach Miller still remains out with a concussion, but is making progress, the story added.
