New, comments

Chicago Bears receiver Kevin White was taken to the locker room late in the third quarter against the Detroit Lions. The rookie injured his left ankle and is questionable to return.

There was initial fear that he injured his left leg-the same leg that cost him the 2015 season-but those fears have been quelled by further evaluation.

White had been playing well against Detroit leading up to his injury as he had six receptions for 55 yards on nine targets beforehand and seemed to be really developing his confidence. Overall, another building performance for the young receiver. Hopefully this injury is nothing too serious and the evaluation is just precautionary.

We’ll have more updates as they come along.
