Grading Chicago Bears center
Lucas Patrick: 563 snaps
Primary matchups: TJ Slaton, Kenny Clark, Greg Gaines, Vita Vea, Derrick Nnadi, DJ Jones, Khyiris Tonga, John Jenkins, Nick Williams, Khalen Saunders, Shy Tuttle
Lucas Patrick has been a big disappointment. In week five, he left with an injury, and the Bears finally had Nate Davis and Teven Jenkins healthy. There was a thought that we may not see Patrick anymore. However, an injury to Nate Davis changed that fate and put him right back into the lineup in week six.
Patrick has not had the same fate as Cody Whitehair, as in his play has not improved in recent weeks. How many big gains do you remember where there was a flag on Patrick in recent weeks? He has four penalties in the last three games and seven this season.
The New Orleans Saints game was arguably his worst of the season, and it has been a bad season. There is still a chance that Davis returns later this season, and the Bears will try to kick Whitehair inside to center once again.
