After leading the league in games lost due to injury last season, the Chicago Bears are trying to repeat the miserable feat in 2017. There are currently seven players on injured reserve (including three starters), and there were five others that were waived/injured earlier this year.
The interior of their o-line has been hit hard, the already suspect wide receiving corps was ravaged by injury, and the linebacker position is getting this as well. Quality depth is tough to build on a roster, and the Bears are already being challenged not even a quarter of the way into the season.
