The best news coming out of last night’s Bears vs Broncos match-up last night was that there were no significant injuries for the Bears depending on the severity of Major Wright’s hamstring issue.  The Green Bay Packers were not that lucky last night in their match-up versus the San Diego Chargers.

Packers starting linebacker Desmond Bishop was injured in the first quarter of the game.  He injured his knee/hamstring and even the day after the injury there hasn’t been any updates on his condition or how long Bishop will be sidelined.  All that was said about Bishop’s knee is that it didn’t look good.  Bishop missed three games last season with a calf injury, and he’s hopeful that last night’s injury isn’t a season ending one.  He was replaced last season by then rookie D.J. Smith, and Smith would be his replacement until he returns from this injury.

The Packers are getting nicked up in the pre-season already, but Bishop’s injury could be a lot more significant.  It’s unknown at this time if Bishop’s condition will be updated again before Coach McCarthy’s press conference tomorrow.

It was BEARly worth mentioning, but they are our biggest rival!

Da BEARS!!!
