The injury bug has bitten Chicago Bears wide out Kevin White again.

The Bears 2015 first round selection has been placed on the injured reserve, diagnosed with a broken bone on the back side of his shoulder and likely will require surgery.

White suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Athletic trainers tended to White on the sidelines before escorting him back to the locker room where he would remain for the rest of the game.

Early reports suggested that White had a broken collarbone, but final diagnoses reveals that the young receiver actually fractured his scapula. A diagnosis that is another in a long line of injuries for the seventh overall pick.

White has now played in just five games including Sunday with three seperate season-ending injuries.
