    BOURBONNAIS -- The Chicago Bears' defensive-line depth took another hit Monday when veteran end Turk McBride was lost for the season to a ruptured Achilles tendon, but the injury news could have been worse.

    The Bears got a scare when Jermon Bushrod, their biggest free-agency addition, left practice early with what turned out to be only a mild calf strain.

    Although his status is day-to-day, he was later seen entering the dining room wearing a walking boot.

    "It's nothing crazy," said Bushrod, calling the boot precautionary.

    Bushrod, the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle signed to help revamp the offensive line, came out after one brief team period with a bag of ice taped to the back of his right leg. He was replaced for the next period by Jonathan Scott.

    McBride will be missed on a defensive line that earlier lost end Sedrick Ellis, who announced his retirement. Former Falcons defensive end Jamaal Anderson was signed to replace Ellis.

    Wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who will get occasional days off after arthroscopic hip surgery in January, was sidelined for the session at Olivet Nazarene University

    Defensive end Cheta Ozougwu also was out with a hamstring injury. The training staff worked on Ozougwu's left leg during Sunday's practice.

    Coach Marc Trestman is expected to address the injury situations after practice.

    Crap Bushrod is too damn important.

    Scott replaced him? I guess it is just camp so no reason to stir up a bees nest by putting long there, :)

    Bushrod is day to day and said it's no biggie just precautionary. I wouldn't worry to much.

    McBride hurts, but I think Washington might be able to step in to fill the depth his loss creates.

    Thankfully no major players have gone down like other teams. I'm with you Ric. Golden opportunity for Washington to come in and get some serious playing time.

    Turk was going to replace Izzy's versatility, so that sucks, but he's not irreplaceable.

    The injury that is also bothering me is Marshalls hip. You hear the BS that he is finally 100% and then he seems to have more problems than he has had in the past. It has me concerned. Turk's injury also sucks... He was putting in some effort. I think Bushrod will be ok.

    Marshal wasn't held out b/c of an injury today though, it was just a vet day. They apparently don't see a need to have him out there to much, and it gives the depth guys a chance to show what they have. It's two birds w/one stone. Save Marshal for the season and see what you have behind him.

    I agree. The stars are lining up for Washington. This means he will at least get a great opportunity to go out and earn some time on the field. Better take it and run with it.
