John Fox's first year in Chicago hasn't been a smashing success by any means. The Bears' defense doesn't resemble the Monsters of the Midway in the slightest and, after losing Brandon Marshall in the offseason and Alshon Jeffery to injury, Jay Cutler has struggled to find a reliable target through the air.
White told Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune that he's "not closing the door" on playing this season because "that would be like quitting." However, White admitted that "he's a long way off" and that a return in 2016 is more realistic.
The team will have to decide by the end of Week 11 whether to activate White to the 53-man roster or shut him down for the remainder of the season.
The organization will likely wait out White's injury and hope he comes back 100 percent healthy next year. There's no use risking him further injury in what has already become a lost season in the Windy City.
