“He's taking coaching well and learning, because, I mean, he missed the whole year last year, so this year he's progressing right where we need him to be,” Jeffery said. “He listens to the coaches, and he's making plays and he's having fun.”
Jeffery, the Bears’ franchise-tag player, is passing along subtle tips to White, who has missed just one open training camp practice, which, if nothing else, constitutes some progress for player who developed a stress fracture in his shin overtraining for the NFL combine last year.
The best glimpse of White in the preseason could come Saturday versus the Kanas City Chiefs, where the Bears' first team is expected to play at least one full half. While it’s not a requirement, it would be beneficial for White to get more involved offensively, without compromising what Chicago’s offense truly intends to do Week 1 at Houston, the story said.
