West Virginia’s offense has taken a rather significant late-season hit.

Dana Holgorsen revealed that Ka’Raun White has a broken bone in his lower leg and will undergo surgery shortly to repair the damage.  The expected recovery time is 6-8 weeks, meaning the wide receiver will miss the remainder of the season.

The injury will sideline White for the regular-season finale against Baylor this weekend as well as WVU’s bowl game.

Holgorsen believes that White, the younger brother of former WVU and current Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White, will be fully recovered for the start of spring practice next year.

A junior, White’s 48 receptions and five receiving touchdowns are second on the Mountaineers.  His 583 yards are third on the team.
