    That's such a shame. At least Emery didn't rest on his laurels at the WR position, we've got others. Less competition is never fun but at least there's still healthy competition. I'd love for Tolliver to show something and I'm hoping Chris Williams earns that kick returning spot and brings us some magic back there. It's going to be hard to adjust to not expecting 3 TD's or more a year. I guess that isn't the norm?

    Glad Hixon got to leave with some rings and honestly that comment about us going to the Super Bowl wasn't required.. so I'm hoping he sees something real in this squad. He's been there and won it a couple times so he knows what a team looks like when they've got the stuff. Let's hope he's right.

    Damn, our primary kick returner is gone, which means Weems is more likely to come back. :4 2 204v[1]:

    Last I heard Chris Williams was going to get first crack and kicks and punts.

    Even before the injury I would have put my money on Chris Williams winning the return duties.

    Too bad. Regardless of how it effects the team, I always feel bad for a guy that has to leave the game due to injury. At least he was fortunate enough to taste success, unlike so many others. I still feel terrible for Johnny Knox, but that poor kid is just lucky to be alive.

    I'll never forget seeing that Knox injury. I was about to leave the room when the play happened, wow. So painful to watch. One of those plays where you can't help but involuntarily cringe when it happens.

    You and me both bruh. I was fine until we kept seeing the replays, then I literally starting getting sick to my stomach. I honestly feared for the young mans life and assumed he would have serious internal injuries. So while I feel sorry for Hixon and those like him, at least he had a good run and has his rings.

    I believe things happen for a reason. I'm sorry to see Hixon lost so soon with a possible career threatening injury. The timing is bad for him, but good for the bears. I would rather see him go down now than during the 6-8 game. Now someone else will now have a chance to replace him.

    Sorry to hear it as well, Hixon was a new Bear but a Bear nonetheless. Luckily we have Marshall for veteran leadership but Hixon could have helped with pointers to many of our younger receivers. Wish him well and a successful recovery.
