Kevin White may be coming to an NFL stadium near you soon.
The Chicago Bears had until today to make a decision on Kevin White’s rookie season. They placed him on Physically Unable to Perform list prior to the start of the Regular Season after their prize draft pick underwent micro-fracture surgery.
I’ve heard mixed reports about his progress. Some have heralded his work ethic during rehabilitation and others have said he hasn’t healed as quickly as the team had hoped. No matter which end of the spectrum is the truth, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune tweeted that the team has decided to open his 21-day window for practicing with the team.
It’s a positive development for the WVU star. It means that he has recovered well enough that the team feels he could be healthy enough to play before the end of the season. He is expected to begin practicing on Tuesday with the team.
The Bears record currently stands at 4-6 after winning two of their last three.
But don’t get too excited however. White had a rod inserted into his left tibia on Aug. 23. The Bears would rather hold him out and let him heal than risk further injury.
