Shea McClellin injury update: Linebacker injured knee, ruled out in 3rd quarter

The Chicago Bears suffered another injury, this time to starting ILB Shea McClellin

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Midway through the 3rd quarter, linebacker Shea McClellin left the field on a cart after injuring his knee making a tackle against Jamaal Charles.  Shortly after being taken to the locker room, the Bears announced that he would not return.

LaRoy Reynolds has stepped into McClellin's place, but there is a noticeable difference between the starter and the backup.

Earlier in the game, Eddie Goldman missed a few plays after being helped off the field, but he was able to return pretty quickly.

Can the Bears defense step up without their play-caller?  Or will this be the final straw that really helps the Chiefs open things up?

Midway through the 3rd quarter, the Bears are down 17-3.  If they are going to minimize the damage, they will have to keep the Chiefs offense off the field.

That's extra pressure on Jay Cutler, who is playing behind a make-shift offensive line.

Stay tuned...
