Bears hoping to finally see healthy Kevin White


  • ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson reports that Chicago Bears head coach John Fox is pleased with the progress of wide receiver Kevin White as he mounts a comeback from another injury.
  • White was the second wide receiver drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft, but has seen just 192 snaps on the field in the regular season thanks to two serious injuries.
  • In his limited amount of time on the field, White has looked reliable, dropping just one of the 20 catchable passes thrown his way in the four games he played in 2016.
  • The 2015 first-round wide receiver class has lacked the impact many expected, with Oakland Raiders playmaker Amari Cooper (80.9) the only one of the six drafted in the opening round to rank among the top 25 wide receivers in the NFL last year, coming in 23rd.

    Definitely a terrible pick by the Bears (even if he doesnt end-up a complete bust) Just production-wise for such a high Draft-pick. Id say the same could be said for all except Cooper.

    Even if healthy, how productive can White be in an offense that has Glennon at the controls? If the Bears can’t improve on their pathetic time of possession (31st last season) the snap count for White will remain low.

      That’s time of possession is surprising considering Howard was #2 in rushing.

        It’s a bit of a statistical anomaly and probably more a reflection of how little confidence the coaches had in Brian Hoyer.
