Kevin White’s season is in jeopardy once again.
The Bears wide receiver has been diagnosed with a break in his left shoulder blade and will be placed on the team’s injured reserve for the third time in three seasons, coach John Fox announced Monday.
White suffered the injury Sunday in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 23-17 loss to the Falcons in just his fifth career regular-season game. While the team has yet to determine if surgery is necessary, he isn’t expected to return until the team’s Nov. 12 game against the Packers at the earliest.
After video review, the ruling on the field was upheld as a fumble, much to the dismay of the Redskins, their fans, and even Fox Sports rules analysts Dean Blandino and Mike Pereira.
“I would also like to thank the Raiders organization, my agents at Sun West Sports, Frank Bauer and Kenny Chapman, and everyone who believed in my talents which allowed me to continue playing the sport I love. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support and love from my wonderful mother, Janet Jones, my grandmother, Gram (Bernice Calhoun) and my beautiful wife, Tamika Jones.”
Jones signed with the Chargers last year, but was released prior to the season and did not play in 2016.
Jones said in his announcement on Pitch Engine he will join NFL Network as an analyst.
“I’m hoping to follow in the footsteps of other great Packer legends like Greg Jennings and Charles Woodson and take my talents into broadcasting,” Jones said. “I admire what they have been able to achieve post-football, so if I can only do one-third of what they’ve accomplished, I should be fine.”
