Injuries: Kevin White injures ankle; Bowman ruled out

Bears wide receiver Kevin White was having his best game as a pro before going down with an injury.

The second-year wideout suffered an ankle injury and didn't return. He had six catches for 55 yards at the time of the injury. White didn't see the field for his entire rookie season after suffering a stress fracture.
