Kevin White the Bears rookie wide out has the itch the play football again, but it is not his call. According to him though he is ready. 

“If it was up to me, I would be out there. I want to be practicing tomorrow,” White said Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “But it’s not my call. I’ve got to follow the rules.

“I feel I can play. But you’ve got to look at the coaches, trainers and if they say, ‘Kevin, give it another week,’ that’s what I have to do. Hopefully we’ll get some good news and hopefully I’ll be back out there very soon.”

White suffered the injury during the Bears’ offseason program and has missed 11 training camp practices with a shin injury. 

“I thought in the (NFL) they’d rush you back — I guess (you should) never just a book by it’s cover,” White said. “They’re taking their time. Whenever they do want me to play, I’ll be ready.”
