Pass Rush without Leonard Floyd

Leonard Floyd is the Bears’ best pass rusher off the edge, but he will be no good being on injured reserve. Now, Chicago will have Pernell McPhee and Sam Acho as the starting outside linebackers this week versus the Eagles. McPhee hasn’t had a sack in the last three games, and Acho only has a half sack on the year. Behind those two on the depth chart are Isaiah Irving and Howard Jones. Irving, an undrafted rookie, and Jones are both unproven players, and will have to chip in tremendously in order to help fill the void left by Floyd.
