EDIT: Starting right guard Josh Sitton left the game with a rib injury and will not return. For those scoring at home, the interior of the Bears offensive line is now Hroniss Grasu at center, Bradley Sowell in at left guard, and Cody Whitehair at right guard. This is Whitehair’s thire position of the day.
Last week the Chicago Bears had their starting inside linebacker, Jerrell Freeman,suffer an injury to his pec in the game against the Atlanta Falcons. He managed to finish the game, but he ended up going on injured reserve this week.
His replacement, Nick Kwiatkoski, has left the game today with a pec injury of his own, and the Bears have ruled him out.
Offensive guard Tom Compton, who was filling in for Kyle Long, had his leg rolled up on and was replaced by inserting Hroniss Grasu at center, with starting center Cody Whitehair sliding over to guard. The Bears have also ruled COmpton out for the game.
Whitehair was actually checked out earlier in the game as well, so that’s something to monitor in the second half.
Wide out Kendall Wright was also forced out for a bit, but the Bears haven’t issued any news on his status.
We’ll update when more information becomes available...
