Tommie Harris Suspended, Out Vs. Lions

The Bears have apparently suspended DT Tommie Harris for one game and it will be this Sunday at Detroit.


The Bears on Thursday suspended defensive tackle Tommie Harris for Sunday’s road game against the Detroit Lions for breaking an unspecified team rule.

The three-time Pro Bowler will continue rehabbing his knee injury this week at Halas Hall, but he won’t rejoin his teammates on the practice field until next week.

“It’s always disappointing when you have to suspend one of your players, but nothing’s bigger than the team,” Smith said.


I don't see any real problem with Harris missing the game Sunday, Detroit has a porous offensive line and our backups SHOULD be able to apply adequate pressure to the statue they have playing QB.  However, I have to wonder what sort of rule was broken, Harris seems like a real team player and someone who does his best to keep his nose clean.  I hope this is just a one time incident and as usual Lovie and JA aren't releasing a lot of details.
