Bears top pick White opens camp on PUP list


The Sports Xchange

Chicago Bears first-round pick Kevin White will be sidelined by a shin injury to open training camp.

The Bears kick off workouts in Bourbonnais, Ill., Thursday.

General manager Ryan Pace said White, the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft, was hurt in the final days of organized team activities and was told to stay off of his feet for most of the past month. White wasn’t a regular participant in OTA workouts, while Alshon Jeffery and free-agent addition Eddie Royal worked with the first-team offense.

Head coach John Fox said White and quarterback David Fales (illness) would be on the physically unable to perform list and not on the practice field this week.

No timetable for White’s return to the field was discussed.

Outside linebacker Lamarr Houston (ACL), recovering from knee surgery following the infamous post-sack celebration in New England last season, and 2014 team leader in sacks Willie Young (Achilles) are limited but available, Fox said.
