Bears wide receiver Kevin White to have surgery on shin

Chicago Bears rookie wide receiver Kevin White will have surgery to address a stress fracture in his left shin. A first-round draft pick from West Virginia, White will begin the season on the physically unable to perform list and will miss at least six games. However, it's widely feared he'll miss his entire season. "He'll convert from active PUP to reserve PUP and then that gives us the option to bring him up in the latter part of the season," Pace said. "Guys, honestly, is there a chance that he misses the season? That's a possibility. I want to make sure we do this the right way, not rush him back. Sometimes I feel like you have to protect them from themselves." Added White: "If I can come back and am able to play a little bit in the season, we'll do it, if I'm feeling OK. But just following through. If they want me out there, then I'll try my best to get out there. I want to come back as soon as possible. ...  If it's this season, then great. If it's next season then I'll just have to wait." Alshon Jeffery is out with a calf injury for the next week.
