“My heart goes out to him,” Fox said of White, per Zaidman. “He was pretty upset about it last night.”
Reports from last night mentioned that White was likely done for the season with a broken collarbone, and while the injury is different, it doesn’t come as a big surprise that his 2017 season is over.
White, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $16.563 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $2,693,598 over the final two years of the agreement.
White’s contract includes a fifth-year option for the Bears to pick up next year, but it’s unlikely they’ll do so.
In 2016, White appeared in four games and caught 19 passes for 187 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He added nine rushing yards on a single carry.
