Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White will be placed on injured reserve with a fractured left fibula, one year after missing his entire rookie season with a stress fracture in the same leg.
White was injured Sunday in a 17-14 victory over the Detroit Lions. In addition to the broken bone, White suffered a high ankle sprain as he was tackled during the third quarter.
 
White leads the Bears this season in receptions with 19, and has 187 receiving yards. The seventh overall draft pick in 2015, he went on IR during the preseason last year because of left shin injury.
 
>>Jerry Jones Surprised By Cowboys 3-1 Start?
 
After Tony Romo went down with a back injury in August, it looked like the Cowboys' season was going to be over before it started. That's because if the Cowboys had proven one thing recently, it's that they're generally horrible without Romo.
 
In 2015 alone, the Cowboys went 1-11 in games that Romo didn't play.
 
With Romo out to start 2016, the expectations were so low in Dallas that Jerry Jones didn't think there was any possible way his team would get off to a hot start.
 
Jones almost seemed shocked recently when he was asked about his team's 3-1 start to the season.
 
"I didn't expect it," Jones said this week, via the Dallas Morning News. "I really didn't expect it.''
 
Although Romo's injury has taken over the headlines in Dallas, that's not that only thing that the Cowboys have had to deal with. Their star left tackle (Tyron Smith), Pro Bowl receiver (Dez Bryant) and All-Pro corner (Orlando Scandrick) have each all missed at least one game this season.
 
Not to mention, the Cowboys also had to deal with three defensive suspensions that were handed out before the season even started (Demarcus Lawrence, Randy Gregory, Rolando McClain).
 
"This is a competitive league. I didn't expect to do it without Dez, without our left tackle, without key players like Scandrick," Jones said. "It says a lot about our depth. It says a lot about Jason [Garrett] and our coaching."
