Bryce Callahan broke his foot against the LA Rams.
The Chicago Bears have done a heck of a job avoiding the injury bug all season long. Other than Kyle Long and Adam Shaheen, no Bears’ player has missed significant time.
It looks like you might have to add Bryce Callahan to that list as well.
Callahan was taken back to the locker room during the Bears’ win against the Los Angeles Rams and was noticeably limping as he walked off the field. Reports are out that Callahan broke his foot.
Foot injuries are always complicated. It’s always difficult to know exactly what is injured, where it’s injured and the timetable for the injury because of its exact location.
Here’s some further information from a well-trusted medical source on Twitter:
So if the injury is further back in his foot, it’s more weight-bearing. That’s the Jones fracture and that will keep Callahan out for the rest of the year and throughout the playoffs. If the injury is further up closer to the pinky toe, Callahan could be back for the playoffs.

It’s still a bit of a wait-and-see situation for the Bears. More information about this injury should come out on Wednesday when the Bears meet with the media. Hopefully the door is still open for a playoff return, but fortunately for Chicago, they should be able to wrap up the division and get a home game without the help of Bryce.
Hopefully Callahan’s injury is more minor, but until we have more details from the team, fans will have to sit tight and wait. It’s a pretty good certainty though that Callahan will miss the remainder of the regular season.
An interesting side note to this story: Elite Icons actually tweeted out that Bryce Callahan was going to miss his autograph session tonight due to a broken foot. This news was nowhere at the time and they were the ones to originally break the news.
The tweet has since been taken down.
