    Chicago Bears WR Kevin White Out With Fractured Shoulder Blade
    Matt Byrne

    Wide receiver Kevin White suffered a fractured scapula against the Atlanta Falcons and will go on injured reserve indefinitely for the third straight season.

    The seventh pick of the 2015 draft, White was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's season-opening loss and came off the field immediately, favoring the shoulder slightly. The team confirmed the severity of the injury Monday.

    White went on injured reserve last year after suffering a spiral fracture to his left fibula in the fourth game. White missed all of 2015 with a stress fracture to his left tibia.

    In three seasons, White has played five games and has 21 receptions for 193 yards without a touchdown. 

    The Bears are now without both of the starting receivers they started with at camp. Cameron Meredith suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in the third preseason game against Tennessee.
