Lance Briggs injury update: Bears LB will miss 4-6 weeks with shoulder injury

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bears Pro Bowl outside linebacker Lance Briggs will miss 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Pro Football Talk is reporting some bad news for Chicago Bears fans...

With Lance Briggs out, expect rookie Jon Bostic to see some playing time in nickle situations. Also expect Bostic to have the radio receiver in his helmet, as he assumes play calling duties in the defensive huddle.

If I were calling the shots at Halas Hall, I would throw rookie Khaseem Green in at outside linebacker, in place of Briggs.

We'll have a press conference open thread up right now, so please keep it PG-13 in this comment thread.
