When I rolled out of bed this morning, Dusty Dvoracek’s season was over according to Brad Biggs.
Based on his past, it cannot come as a surprise to the Bears that Dusty Dvoracek will miss the 2009 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee Saturday night against the New York Giants.
A few hours later, that didn’t seem to be the case according to the Bears official website.
Defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek sustained a sprained MCL in his right knee in Saturday night’s preseason win over the Giants and will undergo additional tests to determine if the injury is more serious.
The Bears would not confirm a newspaper report Monday indicating that Dvoracek is out for the season with a torn ACL because the results of initial tests were inconclusive.
“When I say it’s an MCL, that’s what it is,” said coach Lovie Smith. “That’s all we know right now.”
Dvoracek suffered the injury while sacking Andre Woodson late in the third quarter. The weight of both players landed on Dvoracek’s right leg as he pulled the 6-4, 230-pound quarterback down to the ground.
Who’s working miracles on Dusty’s knee? I don’t know, but there’s a guy with the intials JC in the Bears locker room these days. I had Dusty pegged as a having a tough time to make the final roster, but this isn’t the way to burst his roster bubble.
