    Hixon's statement, "I tore my ACL today for the third time today!" Hixon wrote. "I'm disappointed that I won't be playing for a Bears team that has the players and coaches to win the Super Bowl. I thank God for letting me live my dream of playing in the NFL for 8 years plus. It has truly been fun!"

    Man, you hate to see a guy go out like that. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.

    That is a shitty luck. Sucks for him and the Bears.

    But when you blow out your acl 3 times in a day...ya it's time to hang it up.

    Too bad. Hixon certainly had a few great moments in the NFL and he got two rings. That is more than a lot of guys can say.

    It does just go to show you how quickly fortunes can change. Next man up!

    Just a few years ago he would have been slated as the #1 WR on the Bears roster.
    You gotta feel for the guy.

    After three ACL s you gotta think a comeback was not meant to be.

    It's unfortunate, but it gives Marquees Wilson less competition. Time to step up and bear down kid, don't let B-Marsh eat his words about you by being the "steal of last year's draft".

    Tolliver's chance of making the roster just improved a lot.

    Exactly what came to my mind too. Shit happens even in non-contact OTAs. That's main reason you sign more guys than you need and also the reason why trying to figure a roster and depth chart out right now is an exercise in futility.

    We may see other WR or two come through the door but unless Josh Morgan keeps misbehaving this gives him a good shot at competing with Wilson for the #3 spot and with Tolliver for the #4 spot. My guess is Wilson and Williams are a lock.
