Kevin White is likely going to finish his third consecutive season on the Injured Reserve
Kevin White was the big injury note to take away from the game. However, as the time passed after the game the word began to become more and bleaker. Now, it appears that White is going to head to the injured reserve for his third consecutive seasons.
The easy thing to do is call him injury prone. However, after two seasons dealing with lower body injuries, now White is dealing with a broken collarbone. It just appears that this player is unlucky.
However, one thing is for sure, the Bears are not going to have faith in White moving forward. This is a player who is going to enter his fourth season in the NFL with just five NFL games of being active.
The Bears have to make a decision on his fifth-year option this summer. To think that they would pick up that option is seriously laughable. He will not get cut next year barring injury, but with this news 2018 is almost certainly the last season that White will be with the Bears.
This is now the second straight season that the Bears will be declining a first round picks fifth-year option. White joins Kyle Fuller on that list. This will also be the second time this season the Bears put a starting wide receiver on the injured reserved. White now joins his teammate Cameron Meredith, who is missing the season with a torn ACL.
It is time for Kendall Wright to carry the Bears passing game. That is a scary thought. It will be interesting to see how different the Bears receiving corps is in 2018 with all of these devastating and long term injuries.
