Thought No.2: Injuries are becoming a serious problem
The sheer number of players listed on this week's injury report was quite disturbing.
It has become a weekly tradition during the game. Multiple Bears players getting hurt and having to go to the sideline or be taken into the locker room. One player in particular, Jaquan Brisker is getting hurt a lot during the game. With Eddie Jackson also having an injury-filled season and will miss Sunday's game, losing Brisker would be catastrophic given the lack of depth.
Meanwhile, the offensive line took a massive hit when Nate Davis was placed on IR after suffering a high ankle injury in the Minnesota game. He has gone through so much this season with losing a family member and was starting to play well after missing all of OTAs and training camp. His loss comes at the worst possible time as the rookie Tyson Bagent takes over at QB.
Regardless of what happens this off-season, the Bears must ask hard questions about why there were so many players getting injured throughout the game and if the training staff misjudged the off-season workout programs.
