First-round pick Kevin White will take the practice field with the Chicago Bears for the first time in the regular season on Tuesday.

White was the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He will be limited early as he works back from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left tibia.

The Bears will have 21 days, beginning Tuesday, to add White to the active roster or shut him down for the year. White is on the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

The West Virginia star had surgery August 23 and a titanium rod was place in his left leg for stability.

White was drafted by the Bears after a breakout junior season with the Mountaineers and viewed as the replacement for Brandon Marshall, who was traded to the New York Jets.
