Bears WR Kevin White has looked like anything but an inexperienced young player who'd missed his rookie season and virtually all of training camp with a stress fracture to his left leg.
QB Jay Cutler and White spent time together in the offseason, away from football, and one result is the receiver understanding what his quarterback needs and demands.
White was practicing late last season before the Bears opted to leave him shut down after their season. The lost season set him behind on his learning curve, particularly given his relative inexperience playing at the highest level at West Virginia. But the Bears also gave White’s injury time to heal rather than rush their No. 7-overall draft choice onto the field. The time off allowed more than just the stress-fracture surgery to mend. It's a good sign for the Bears offense that White is looking impressive early on.
