Allen Robinson and Kevin White both put on shelf with season ending injuries
With an already thinned out depth chart the Chicago Bears suffer yet another blow to the wide receiver department losing the 3rd-year wide receiver Kevin White.
You just can’t make this up. This was supposed to be the year that Kevin White finally stayed healthy and rose to the occasion, responding to all his critics who forgot about him long ago. He needed to prove that his previous two injuries were just freak injuries, and that he could hold his own…. he showed everybody who doubted him that he may never be a threat in this league unfortunately—and he may go down as one of the biggest busts in Chicago Bears history.
In just his fifth appearance in a game as a pro Kevin White is now facing season ending surgery. This time it’s his collarbone, and the injury takes away the positives that Mike Glennon and rookie Tarik Cohen provided against the NFC champions.
Unlike Kevin White, Allen Robinson is a top-shelf name in both fantasy and actual football, and we all know how valuable Robinson is to the Jags. Right before the beat down Jacksonville put on their rival, Robinson finished with one reception for 17 yards before he ended up on the turf as fans held their breaths hoping it wasn’t what it appeared to be, but was later announced that a torn ACL is the diagnosis for the young wideout.
There’s no telling if Robinson will remain on the Jags roster come next season being that this was a contract year for him. There’s a possibility that he could remain with the team but not end up with the contract he wants, or may have to put up another season to prove himself. Stay tuned for updates on both receivers.
