The Chicago Bears and its fans alike had become excited to see rookie wide receiver Kevin White running in individual drills alst week, as well as 11-on-11's with his teammates this week, and for all intents and purposes, head coach John Fox said White's leg injury was healed.
But making a jump from college to the pros is significant, and not something most players can do in a short period of time. Everything is faster, everyone is stronger, the pace is faster, and the offensive schemes are much more in-depth.
So while the rook might be getting shut down for the year, it might be for the best. He can continue working out, getting into football shape, and learning the playbook. There's always next year...
