The spotlight has been on Kevin White since the Chicago Bears drafted him seventh overall back in 2015, but that spotlight got brighter when Cameron Meredith tore his ACL last week against the Tennessee Titans.

The 2017 season was probably going to be rough for the Bears.
This was tough not only for Amukamara, but for the Bears as well.

Then, then next day, he generated further controversy with his "both sides" remark during a press conference at Trump Tower. Tillerson replied: " The president speaks for himself".
Cornerback Sherrick McManus (hamstring), outside linebacker Leonard Floyd (foot) and linebacker Dan Skuta (concussion) also had to leave the game early. Likely had additional damage, too. Patrick Scales suffered a knee injury in the first half and was taken into the locker room on a cart. Barring a late offseason injury, Shaw will not make the Bears' roster to start the 2017 season.
In fact, the injury was so bad that the FOX broadcast refused to show a replay of Meredith's injury.
Meredith had a breakout season in 2016, leading Bears receivers with 66 receptions for 888 yards and four touchdowns in only his second National Football League campaign, and he was expected to be a big part of their offence as they look to improve on a 3-13 season.
The Bears now lead the Titans, 12-0, at halftime.
