The No. 7 pick in the draft, White has been sidelined all season after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left shin. A 21-day evaluation period to determine if the Bears would activate the former West Virginia star ended Tuesday.
White started experiencing pain in his shin in June during organized team activities. He had surgery in August after therapy failed to cure his discomfort.
