Injury update: Chicago Bears suffers Brutal Injury as Misfortune Continues…

Published

People talk about the curse of the Chicago Bears quarterback position. Maybe they should start mentioning the offensive line more often.

This team has yet to release its entire 2023 starting five. At least one man is out for a long time. First up was Teven Jenkins with a calf problem. Then there was Braxton Jones with a neck injury, followed by Nate Davis with a high ankle sprain. If the misery wasn’t bad enough, the news from Halas Hall somehow made it worse.

Rookie right tackle Darnell Wright, their top blocker this season, had a shoulder problem Wednesday. A day later he was demoted to DNP (did not practice). That’s never a good sign of a player’s pregame availability.

Although Wright went through warm-ups, there are fears that he will not be able to face the Las Vegas Raiders. That means the Bruins would be at left tackle, right tackle and right tackle. All this as rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent prepares to make his first start.
Talk about rotten luck.

The Chicago Bears are hurt. The problems are not limited to the offensive line. Eddie Jackson is dealing with a foot problem again. Backup center/guard Dan Feeney is out with a knee injury. Justin Fields is not expected to play out of his already established position.

Roschon Johnson is still not back from his concussion against Washington. Last but not least, rookie cornerback Terell Smith has money. The Bears were already struggling to win games when they were somewhat healthy a few weeks ago. Now it seems the deck is stacked against them.

Their only consolation is that Las Vegas has its own problems. Jimmy Garoppolo is out with a back injury. Regardless, their team is still much healthier. If the Chicago Bears don’t have Wright on hand, that means the quarterback will be facing star pass rusher Maxx Crosby, who already has 5.5 sacks this season. No doubt he’s licking his chops thinking about going after a new QB. It takes master coaching by Matt Eberflus and his staff to win here.
