White (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
White will be a healthy scratch for a second straight game after also being kept to the sideline Week 9 versus the Bills. He's caught just three passes all season and has yet to carve out a role in the Bears' offense.
White (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.
The Bears made it clear that the oft-injured White wasn't part of their future plans when they declined his fifth-year option in May, but the 2015 first-round pick had still suited up in each of the first seven contests. While working in a depth role this season, White has been targeted just five times, hauling in three passes for 70 yards. With the Bears apparently not confident that he would be able to offer much impact even with No. 1 wideout Allen Robinson (groin) sidelined, White will be a healthy inactive for the first time all season. White's absence will allow rookie seventh-round selection Javon Wims to suit up as the team's fourth receiver.
With Allen Robinson missing the game with a groin injury, Josh Bellamy saw five targets while White was targeted three times as the duo alternated playing time. Although he's seeing more field time than he had over the first five games of the season, White's yet to emerge as a fantasy option.
White saw increased field time during the second half when Allen Robinson was on the sidelines. On the final play of the game, he caught a 54-yard Hail Mary bomb from Mitch Trubisky, only to be tackled on the one-yard line as time expired. Should Robinson be forced to miss time with injury, it appears as if White would begin to see some playing time, but until he shows the ability to show consistent production, it'll be difficult to trust him on fantasy rosters.
