Broken clavicle sends Kevin White back to IR

Broken clavicle sends Kevin White back to IR

According to some reports the Bears fear White broke his scapula on the play and will be lost for the season. Reports confirmed that White fractured his shoulder blade, and the Bears placed him on IR this afternoon.

A broken collarbone for Kevin White is leading to a broken record feeling for the Chicago Bears. This begs the question, what does the future have in store for both sides? But if they can control the ball on offense and make enough big plays defensively, they have an outside shot at the upset.

You also can argue that the Bears win the game if they convert any one of their last four pass attempts that all came from the Falcons' 5-yard line with less than 21 seconds to play. Unfortunately, this limited opportunity doesn't bode well for the remainder of White's professional career. He has the established speed to at least be a deep threat for opposing secondaries, but only played in three games a year ago with the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a shoulder issue that required surgery in January. Either way, an injury for White is bad news.

White finished the game with two receptions for 6 yards on four targets.

Jones took a pass from quarterback Matt Ryan for a 25-yard gain in the second quarter for his 500 reception. But it appears as though his season could be over after just two receptions for six yards. Bounced back from a lot of injuries. He very well may have plenty of play left in him. Last season was pretty disappointing for him, so hopefully he can bounce back as the player he was in Denver.

It's possible the Bears could elevate undrafted rookie Tanner Gentry from the practice squad or sign a free agent wide receiver.

Kendall Wright and Josh Bellamy caught the most passes among Bears wide receivers with three each.

Mike Glennon: Glennon wanted to be the starting quarterback and now he got his wish. Starters were gassed by the late third quarter, and without good depth players the likes of Hicks and Marcus Cooper were simply unable to maintain their level of performance, and the cracks started to show. At the end of the game, had Bobby Massie been able to help Glennon not get sacked, the Bears may have won the game. Howard will remain the lead runner, but Cohen needs to receive as many touches as he can handle. "So, I got to fix the ones I'm not proud of and become more consistent". While Glennon never will be the athlete Mitch Trubisky is, he is a lot more National Football League ready right now than the rookie, and that will allow the talent around him to develop.

Chicago's hopes are bleak this season but with the right formula, the historic organization's future could be bright. Kevin White is now under pressure. Former Pro Bowler Vincent Jackson is out there, but tore his ACL last year and, at the age of 34, has seen his production sharply decline over the last three years.
