White left Sunday's opener against the Atlanta Falcons and didn't return.
However, Chicago scored 10 of their own including a Jordan Howard rushing touchdown to make it a 10-10 game at the half.
The quarterback didn't get much help from his teammates, and the Bears lost, 23-17, to the defending NFC champion Falcons.
The Falcons parried with a 37-yard Matt Bryant field goal to go, giving the Bears the ball with 3:18 to play down by six.

All 17 lawmakers who voted against the deal were Republicans and included prominent senators like Sen. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican in the Senate.
This seems to be the curse of the Bears this season.
Quarterback Mike Glennon completed 26 of 40 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown in his Bears debut. In his absence, the Bears are expected to start veteran Tom Compton.
The rare "answer" drive - the Bears struggled to respond in similar situations a year ago - came after the Falcons used 11 plays to go 83 yards and score on a Devonta Freeman five-yard run to break a 3-3 tie.
And the Bears look like they're going to be a better team than most people thought. Beasley and linebacker Deion Jones are back to anchor Atlanta's defense, which hopes to redeem itself for the second-half collapse against New England in the Super Bowl. Lining up in the Wildcat formation, Cohen took the direct snap and handed off to Howard, who dashed around right end and picked up a block from Glennon, who was lined up wide on the play.
After a season from hell when it came to injuries in 2016, the Bears are not in the same spot, but it is heading there with their 2017 luck.
