    BIG lost for the Bears.

    Very unfortunate. Was playing very well in camp after spending the offseason training with Brandon and Alshon. I was high on the guy and thought that he would be the next big thing.

    I'm not sure of the timetable but, I believe the recovery time for this type of injury may be 6 to 12 weeks. This would put him back at possibly the Jets in Week 3, the Packers in Week 4, or the Panthers in Week 5 at the earliest.

    I have to say that I'm NOT comfortable at all with Josh Morgan and Eric Weems (or any of the other receivers currently on the depth chart) getting the bulk of the playing time at #3 receiver.

    Emery had better start working those phones now.

    What did they do last year at WR #3; didn't use one. Went 2 TE's and threw the ball to Forte and Bennett; Joe Anderson is still out there, if I'm his agent I'm on the phone w/Chicago right now though.

    Either way I'm not worried about it.

    We all knew SOMEONE was going to be injured.

    In the grand scheme of things, it's better at WR than at a position of greater need, like safety.

    It will be interesting to see if they put him on the PUP list at the end of PS. That would mean he couldn't be activated until the 8th game of the regular season.

    That's a frucken bummer man. Dude was busting his ass to make it a good year and it was busting his ass - going for a hard ball - that but the kibosh on the whole deal.

    Well, if an injury was going to happen, I suppose this early in the preseason is the time to have it. I remember when Romo broke his clavicle they said the recovery time is between 6-10 weeks which would potentially make him available about early October. I don't see any reason why he couldn't contribute after the Bear's Bye week and the second half of the season.

    Shit

    Likely looking at 4 weeks minimum and 8-10 more likely to be safe depending on severity, location, etc. I'm guessing he's headed for PUP which means activated after 1/3rd of season IIRC. Bummer

    Earl Bennett anyone? He knows the offense...
